If you are sure and have a 100% guarantee that you had absolutely nothing to contribute in the deafult that was caused, you should in that case definitely approach the court to get your rights back in the form of unnecessary deductions from the salary account.
Otherwise, if you are even 1% not sure or not confident about it then you should agree to the protocols and not pursue the matter ahead because once these matters backfire, and you leave the job on bad terms – it will affect your further career.
However, its her legal right to know the reasonable cause of the problem. You can write an application towards furnishing you the documents in pursuance of such a default alongwith the reason behind taking a step of making deductiions from your salary.
Also, if the handing over (of the charge) was done properly and as per law then the responsibilty should come out to be that of another individual taking charge. Because at the time of taking charge, he/she should have been cautious and objected at the particular time.
