An FIR was filed against the former captain of the Indian team, MS Dhoni, and seven others in a town in Bihar.
The cause of the FIR was found to be a bounce cheque case.
According to reports, a company called SK Enterprises filed the case in CMJ court on Monday.
They claimed that a cheque of 30 lakh INR, received from New Global Produce India Limited, was rejected.
The 40-year-old Dhoni had earlier promoted the company and was thus named in the FIR.
After Monday’s hearing, the case was handed over to magistrate Ajay Kumar Mishra and the next hearing is scheduled for 28 June.
SK Enterprises delivered a fertilizer order, but most of the product was unsold.
To compensate, the company took over the rest of the fertilizer and NGPIL gave the cheque valued at 30 lakh INR.
The cheque was then deposited with the bank, but it bounced back as a result of which a legal notice was served.
No response was received and SK Enterprises filed an FIR against Dhoni and 7 others.
The complaint was brought pursuant to Articles 406, 120 (B) of the Indian Penal Code and Article 138 of the NI Act.
