I have resigned from my organization - a private bank of repute, through our online employee portal. As per process my resignation has been accepted and I have been asked to serve a full 90 day notice period which I have agreed to and there is only a week left for my notice period to get over.
Since resignation is on an online platform, I have adequate proofs confirming my last date.

I have two issues in hand:

1. Bad boss/bosses who took it at his liberty to threaten me this week that he will issue a termination letter or give a very bad releiving letter and screw my carrer if I donot complete work which is due three months after my last date in the organization. (Company has not yet been able to get a replacement for me)
As I see it since I have already resigned and at the fag end of my notice period my employer cant terminate me. Also in regards to releiving letter, it is issued by HR and not my manager. As I understand company has set HR process and the letter will be issued on time but could not understand how much tampering they can do with it in terms of wording it badly.

2. I am supposed to return company's laptop and my Id card to my reporting manager on the last day. What if he refuses to accept the same. I have email from IT team confirming that the ownership of the laptop belongs to my manager since I have resigned. My manager has been unethical enough to tell me that he would force me to serve extra one month after my notice period is over so that work due upto three months from my last date is completed. What is my recourse if he denies to accept the laptop and later company tries to raise a complaint stating I am absconding with company's asset?

I am not sure wether I should escalate the entire episode to head of HR and tell him that this is mentally harassing.
