In Motor Vehicle Accident involving death no release of uninsured vehicle without obtaining security

Cr.P.C. S.457 : Where there is no insurance cover for a vehicle, the owner should be directed to offer security or deposit an amount, adequate to satisfy the award that may be ultimately passed, as a condition precedent for release of the seized vehicle involved in the accident. If such security or cash deposit is not made, within a period of three months, appropriate steps may be taken for disposal of the vehicle and hold the sale proceeds in deposit until the claim case is disposed of. -Jai Prakash Vs. National Insurance Company, (2010) 2 SCC 607.
