You can now lodge a case of cheating or a Criminal complaint U/S 200 Cr pc before Magistrate as period of 15 Days already over from the date of serving notice on 7.4.14.
Its not clear whether the cheque given by him has been dishounoured and notice has been served upon him against that, if so then after expiry of 15 days period you can file criminal case under Section 138 of N.I.Act.

Within a period of 15 days you have to file the case in the concerned court.
