A consumer court on Friday issued notice to the proprietor of a furniture shop for August 26 on a suit seeking Rs500,000 damages for being sold defective furniture.
Petitioner Muhammad Ayub submitted that he had purchased a Rs45,000 bed set from Younus Furniture House. He said the respondent, Muhammad Younus, had told him that the bed set was made of good quality wood and that he would replace it if it was found to be defective. Ayub said a few months after he had bought the set the colour of the bed and the tables began to fade. He said he took up the matter with the respondent but he refused to replace the bed set. He prayed the court to direct the respondent to replace the defective bed set with a new one and pay him Rs500,000 damages. Muhammad Younas said he had told Ayub to return the bed set and get a replacement. Instead the petitioner had gone to the consumer court, he added.
