Thus, while hearing a case records of which have been called for revision by himself, the Sessions Judge has the same powers as the High Court has under Section 401 of the Code. It would appear from Section 399(3) of the Code that, while a person has the choice to move either the High Court or the Sessions Judge under Section 397 of the Code, if he chooses to go before the Sessions Judge, he cannot thereafter go before the High Court even if the Sessions Judge rejects his revision application.
