A man received a brass turtle instead of Samsung mobile in parcel. Postal department pressurized him to take delivery of the parcel when he refused to accept the un-demanded content.
A consumer was in for a shock when he received a brass turtle worth 200 rupees in the packet that was supposed to contain one unit of Samsung mobile instrument. Harish Navlakha, resident of 100 feet road in Bhuwana, said that he had received a phone call 15 days back as per which the caller was from Samsung mobile company. Harish Navlakha was given details of some special scheme as per which Samsung Galaxy J-7 mobile handset with a showroom price of 10500 rupees was being given for merely 3500 rupees if ordered online. Tempted to buy a good quality phone at a comparatively lower cost, Navlakha placed his order. This Wednesday, a young boy brought his parcel home and asked for a payment of 3500 rupees. Navlakha was asked to pay 3500 rupees without checking the contents of the parcel. The delivery boy also asked him to sign the acknowledgment voucher of the postal department. The parcel was damaged, so Navlakha refused to pay without checking the contents. Since the young boy claimed to be an employee of post office, Navlakha drove to Shastri Circle post office with this boy. Upon opening the packet in the presence of staff of post office, a brass turtle worth 200 rupees was found inside instead of Samsung mobile. Navlakha refused to take delivery of the parcel. Postal department employees started pressurizing him to take the parcel as is since it was in his name.
Navlakha did not accept the delivery and filed FIR in Sukher police station against the postal department for act of cheating and for pressurizing him to take delivery of the wrong content.
