Yes. After acquital the presumption of innocence gets firm and complete. Then for filing complaint against complainant you have to show that he had filed in mischief or defamatory or any ground which a judge can take notice of.

yes they can file but not any nonfactual case related to this because the case is done by the record shows in it and after that it would be that he can no file against the same case which was decided by the court.
