I know this is a very old question but I want to know another thing

If I flag my question to moderator then is it possible that they cancel my bounty and return back my reputation?

I really want my points back :( because I have settled it mistakenly

If you set the bounty mistakenly, you should flag it to moderators and explain the situation. But it does not guarantee that your bounty will be canceled because it totally depends on moderators. They will decide to cancel it or no.

From bounty FAQ

Can I cancel my bounty?

No. Once you start a bounty, you cannot cancel it.

If you feel there are exceptional circumstances, flag the question for moderator attention to explain the situation.
