In his claim, the Mr.Satodiya Extractor stated the cigars were lost ‘in a series of small fire. ‘The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion. Mr. Satodiya Extractor went in court.
While delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous!! The judge stated nevertheless, that the Mr. Satodiya Extractor held a policy from the company, in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be ‘unacceptable fire’, and was thus obligated to pay the claim. So, rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling, and paid Rs. 15,000 to the Mr. Satodiya Extractor for his loss of the cigars lost in the ‘fires’
