No.  {chegh} seems to be a verb of motion: 

	ghorgh pa'wIjDaq jIchegh? 
	When can I return to my room? CK 
	DaH machegh. 
	[We're returning now.] ST6 (untranslated) 

	wa'leS jIchegh 
	Tomorrow I will return. KGT

For the transitive meaning, use {nobHa'} "give back, return" (cf. KGT glossary), which was used in:

	Huch nobHa'bogh verenganpu''e' yIvoqQo' 
	Don't trust Ferengi who give back money. TKW
