Serve legal notice on him claiming the amount, and then file a case u/s 138 NI Act . You can also file a case for cheating and misappropriatio of property.

1. Issue a lawyer's notice to the borrower. 

2. If he does not pay back the amount even after notice then take out criminal proceedings and also a civil suit for recovery.
