Criminal Revision is not competent against Acquittal

When an accused is acquitted from a competent court of law, the only remedy available to accused party is under the provisions of section 417 of Criminal Procedure Code, 1898. According to section 417 only appeal can be filed before the High Court against the order of aquittal.

According to section 439(5) of Criminal Procedure Code 1898 criminal revision can only be filed in cases where there is no remedy of appeal available. Hence where the statute specifically provides remedy of appeal, criminal revision is not competent and non maintainable if filed.
