If the victim intends to file an appeal against the acquittal of the accused, the appeal can be filed before the High Court under Section 378(4) of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), 1973.
According to this provision, any person, including the victim, aggrieved by an order of acquittal passed by a court other than a High Court, may file an appeal before the High Court. In this case, since the order of acquittal was passed by a learned Magistrate, the victim can file an appeal before the High Court.
It is important to note that the appeal must be filed within the specified time limit mentioned in Section 378(3) of the CrPC, which is generally 90 days from the date of the order of acquittal
