If any person is aggrieved by any order or judgement of the court or tribunal , he/she can file an appeal before the Higher Court for ensuring the ends of justice. Generally Criminal Appeal before the High Court Division may b e preferred against the judgement passed by the Court of Sessions and against the interim order as well as the judgement passed by the Tribunals constituted under the special laws. An appeal may lie on a matter of fact as well as a matter of law and it is applied equally to all criminal appeals, whether made by government or complainant against an acquittal or inadequacy of sentence and to appeals made by a convicted person against a sentence and conviction.
