Well, the case seems to be of cheating and fraud.
Since economic offence has occurred you have no option but to seek legal help.
Do lodge a complaint with local Durgapur PS. and ask the police to register the FIR.
If the police does not do so then file petition u/s 156(3) crpc.
Filing writ petition in high court is another option against police inaction.

He is liable to be prosecuted for cheating and criminal breach of trust, both offences carry imprisonment up to 2 years, but he has to be arrested and produced in the court. If you have lodged the FIR then apply to the court to issue a NBW against him.
