Yogender Chand &
ANR Vs. United India Insurance Co. Ltd. & Ors  INSC 1346 (11 August
JURISDICTION CIVIL APPEAL NO. 5039 OF 2008 [Arising out of SLP(C) No.
15936/2006] ORDER Leave granted.
Having heard the
learned counsel for the parties, we are of the opinion that keeping in view the
fact that the Insurance Company has already deposited the entire amount awarded
and had initiated a separate proceeding for recovery thereof from the owner of the
vehicle, it was not necessary for the High Court to direct the appellant also
to deposit the awarded amount. The impugned order is, therefore, set aside.
However, the recovery
proceedings initiated by the Insurance Company against the owner of the vehicle
We request the High
Court to consider the desirability of disposing of the appeal preferred by the
appellant as expeditiously as possible, preferably within a period of six
months from the date of receipt of a copy of this order.
The appeal is
disposed of on the above terms.
