Can I Hire My Private Lawyer If I'm The Victim

I've logged an FIR under the section 376,420. They said that the state will give me a lawyer but am I allowed to hire my own lawyer? What are the fees? Is it very costly? What can be the fees range?

Dear Sir,
It all depends upon the profile of the advocate you chose it may range between Rs.50 k to 5L. Secondly you have to seek permission of the Court to engage private lawyer. You have taken a wise decision.
