A consumer court on Monday summoned the proprietor of a mobile phone shop for November 8 in a Rs100,000 suit.
Petitioner Muhammad Azhar told the court he had purchased a used Nokia mobile from Muhammad Naeem, owner of Naeem Mobile at Hafeez Centre, for Rs3,000 one month ago. Naeem had promised free repair if the phone broke down, he said.
He said he noticed the next day that the phone did have a problem and he contacted the shop. Naeem took the phone for repair but later returned it without fixing it, he said. Naeem refused to replace the phone too, he said. He asked the court to direct the respondent to pay him Rs100,000 in damages.
Talking to The Express Tribune, Naeem said that he had asked Azhar to visit his repair shop, but he did not. He said he was ready to remove the fault.
