After suffering mental torture and monetary losses for one year in the company whose actions are questionable, you are approaching this forum rather late. This company does not seem to have business/projects to sustain and future is bleak because of which they are adopting such dubious means. No wonder if it folds down soon.
But you also made glaring mistakes:
- Joining without appointment letter and knowing salary/benefits
- No background check about company's standing in the business, projects on hand and financial
- Paying Rs 20,000/- thousand without any documents
- Signing bond
- Absconding from one fine day
At this stage, I can only suggest to approach local Labour Commissioners' office with written complaint well drafted by some expert putting the entire sequence of events and wrong d0ings by the company.
While joining new company take care you know fully well about it, have documents in hand and make sure that you are not joining any fly by night company.

I am in complete agreement with the suggestion of Mr. Vinayak. One should not be so gullible in life very particularly in the matter of employment. Your complaint to the Labour Department would certainly deter the ex employer from precipitating the issue further.
Also submit a petition to the State Chief Minister's Special Cell so that there would be directions to the District Collector concerned.

As suggested by learned friends in the earlier columns, see that you are a more matured and learned employee.
Take the above said advise and move along with your life without giving too much importance to this one issue. You take it up as it comes as you too know that you made several blunders but nothing life threatening...so why stress yourself too much.
Make sure to lodge the complaint to preempt the issue[s] that might arise and move along with your normal life.
Thanks and Regards
