section 138 to 142

sir, i have advanced an amount of Rs.10 lakhs on good faith to my friend based on promissory note endorsed on Rs.10 NJC supported by a surety on Rs.100 NJC. On a later date himself and surety issued one cheque each towards part payment which were bounced with INSUFFICIENT FUNDS at first instance and SIGNATURE DIFFERS in second instance. I filed a case u/s 420 which was court referred and is pending investigation. Subsequently i received another cheque for entire amount through his messenger and again the cheque was dishonoured for want of funds. How can i proceed legally under negotiable instrument act apart from pending complaint u/s 420 ? Plz let me be known about the criminal procedures for recovery of money. Please be kind enough in answering elaborately. Thank you
