It is a ase of vicarious liability.Dince both the vehicles are not haviing insurance so both vehicles owners are liable to compensate  but injured ( motor cycle driver ) had no driving licence so he has no right to claim any compensation from vehicle owners.

Compensation is the law, having insurance is a relief, and not having insurance is also a violation.  Having insurance or not is the question, compensation has to be paid as decided by the Tribunal/court.  Go for a compromise before Lokadalat.

Both the vehicles were not insured, hence the case u/s 279 IPC will proceed but MVA claim shall not be entertained.
