Shop manager held for flouting Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum order in Odisha’s Sundargarh

However, the shop manager did not obey the consumer disputes redressal forum order.

Accepting a contempt plea from the petitioner, the forum directed the shop manager to depose before it.

The manager has been told to depose before the forum on June 20.
