Does Consumer Protection Act Debar From Alternative Remedies

If a consumer files a case under the Consumer Protection Act in a Consumer Redressal forum, is he debarred from seeking alternative remedies under Indian Penal Code (where he has been cheated also) or under CPC for restrain etc?

I'd think Section 3 Consumer Protection Act applies. Provisions of this Act are in addition to any other Act in force.
