m.p. thakkar, j.1. while in some states (andhra pradesh, gujarat) a widow of a victim of a motor vehicle accident can recover the amount of compensation awarded to her from the insurance company, in a precisely similar fact-situation she would be unable to do so, in other states (assam, madhya pradesh, orissa), conflicting views having been taken by the respective high courts. the unaesthetic wrinkles from the face of law require to be removed by settling the law so that the same law does not operate on citizens differently depending on the situs of the accident. the question is whether the insurer is entitled to claim immunity from a decree obtained by the dependents of the victim of a fatal accident on the ground that the insurance policy provided 'a condition excluding driving by a named person or persons or by any person who is not duly licensed or by any person who has been disqualified for holding or obtaining a driving licence during the period of disqualification,' and that such exclusion was permissible in the context of section 96(2)(b)(ii) 3. 96. duty of insurers to satisfy judgments against persons insured in respect of third party risks-(1) if, after a certificate of insurance has been issued under sub-section (4) of section 95 in favour of the person by whom a policy has been effected, judgments in respect of any such liability is required to be covered by a policy under clause (b) of sub-section (1) of section 95 (being a liability covered by the terms of the .....

Reported in : 1987Supp(1)SCC89

s. natarajan and; v. balakrishnan eradi, jj.1. this appeal by special leave is directed against an order of the high court allowing a petition under section 482 crpc and quashing the first information report registered against the respondents and the proceedings taken in pursuance thereof. the order of the high court cannot be sustained because the police authorities are enjoined by law to register a case and conduct investigation whenever information is laid regarding the commission of cognizable offences. as such the quashing of a first information report will amount to restraining the police authorities from performing the duties enjoined upon them by law. the high court has not been unaware of this position because it has stated in its order as follows:insofar as the legal position is concerned it is well established that the first information report which sets into motion the investigational process can be quashed only in a case where the facts as alleged in the report, even if taken to be true, do not prima facie constitute an offence, meaning thereby that the first information report must disclose prima facie that a cognizable offence has been committed.2. the high court has, however, not confined its scrutiny to the averments contained in the first information report but has traversed beyond and examined the case in the light of the contentions put forth by the respondents in their petition under section 482 crpc. by indulgence in such exercise the high court has .....

order1. the certificate on the basis of which this appeal is filed is issued by a learned single judge of the high court of bombay under article 134a of the constitution in respect of an order passed by him in a writ petition in which the employees of the state bank of india had questioned the right of the management to fix the hours of work and the hours of recess and its right to stagger the period of recess and had prayed for other consequential reliefs. the learned single judge allowed the petition following certain earlier decisions of the high court rendered by the division benches. he however proceeded to grant a certificate of fitness to file an appeal against his decision before this court following an earlier order of a division bench granting such a certificate in respect of one of those earlier decisions. he issued the certificate under article 134a of the constitution without referring to the article under which the appeal could be filed. article 134a of the constitution reads thus:134a. every high court, passing or making a judgment, decree, final order, or sentence, referred to in clause (1) of article 132 or clause (1) of article 133, or clause (1) of article 134,-(a) may, if it deems fit so to do, on its own motion; and(b) shall, if an oral application is made, by or on behalf of the party aggrieved, immediately after the passing or making of such judgment, decree, final order or sentence,determine, as soon as may be after such passing or making, the question .....
