The holder of cheque may not succeed. You have to take a precaution. He is under obligation to send a legal notice to you before filing a case. When you receive such a notice, you must respond in writing saying that an amount of 2.5 Lacs has been transferred through net banking in lieu of the dishonoured cheque no._ _ dated __ (give full particulars). You must send your response through registered post with AD and/or through courier and keep the Proof of delivery with you.
Dear Sir / Madam,
When you have separately transferred the amount vide net banking, there is no reason why the opposite party should retain your cheque. YES, there is a possibility that he might lodge a case of "Cheque Bouncing" against you for that cheque. You should ask the person to return back the cheque to you immediately.
