LAHORE:


A consumer court on Friday issued arrest warrants for proprietors of The Diners, a clothing chain, for August 26 after their representatives failed to appear in a suit seeking Rs181,000 damages for poor stitching.


Petitioner Kashif Bashir said that he had purchased a coat and trousers for Rs6000 from the shop in Allama Iqbal Town in March. Bashir the trousers did not fit despite recording of his measurements.

He said when he complained the staff then allegedly told him that The Diners was not responsible and asked him to leave.

Bashir asked the court to direct The Diners to return the Rs 6000 he had paid, Rs100,000 for mental stress, Rs50,000 for lost time and Rs 25,000 for counsel’s fees.

A notice sent by the court was received by Muhammad Arshad on behalf of the company, but no representatives appeared for the hearing.
