    Hello,

    If an appeal under section 29 of DV Act is dismissed by a Session Court then what are the legal remedies left with the Applicant? Can he file for review of the order of the Session Judge at the District Judge? Or only option left is to file for appeal at High Court u/s 397/401 Crpc? Or is there any more remedy? Please let me know.

    Thanks.

    You may have to file a revision application under Section 397/401 of the Criminal Procedure Code before the high court against the order of the Sessions Court under Section 29 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act [see, Full Bench decision of the Allahabad high court in Criminal Revision No. 582 of 2016 (Dinesh Kumar Yadav v. State of U.P.) decided on 27 October 2016]. Under the Cr.P.C., the Sessions Court does not have the power to review its own order except to correct a clerical or arithmetical error.
