    What is the maximum limitation time period for filing an appeal in the high court against the decision of acquittal of the accused by the Sessions Court?

  • #4923

    The limitation period for filing an appeal before the High Court against an order of acquittal passed by the Sessions Court is 90 days, generally. This applies for appeal filed by the State or by the victim.

    However, if the case was instituted on the basis of a complaint (i.e., a private complaint case), then the limitation period for filing such appeal is 60 days if such appeal is filed by the complainant (who may also sometimes be the victim).
