A consumer court has issued a decree ordering the owner of a fitness equipment maker to pay Rs120,000 to a buyer whom he had sold out two out-of-order treadmills, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.

Reportedly, Mian Tanveer, resident of Gulberg, placed an order of getting two treadmills from a fitness equipment shop situated in Neela Gunbad, Lahore. But the shop owner first delivered the running machines after a long delay, and on top of that he did not use quality material in the making of the treadmills and the buyer noticed that the machines were not working properly. 

When Mr Tanveer asked the shop owner for the return of the treadmills, the latter refused to do so. The buyer lodged a complaint with the consumers’ court.

While deciding the case, consumer court Judge Muhammad Waseem Afzal issued a decree against the shop owner asking him to pay the buyer Rs120,000.
