I am posting this thread as a warning for all non-pushto speaking guys who want to get their vehicles repaired at Shoba bazar Peshawar.
I went to Peshawar yesterday as my father had some official work there. On motorway my car (Suzuki Khyber) was not accelerating smoothly so after dropping my dad at an office in Peshawar, I started searching for some tuning workshop. A taxi driver suggested me to go to Shoba Bazar Peshawar and told me that it is a big bazar having lot of workshops.
I went to Shoba bazar. There is a ticket of 20 Rs entering Shoba Bazar as if it is some kind of a circus. There was mechanic there with 4,5 junior mechanics. I told him the problem. He cleaned the plugs with sandpaper and installed them back. Then he tuned the CNG kit by rotating that screw.
He asked me that your car needs this, your cars needs that. I told him that I am coming from Rawalpindi and I don't have money to spend on these things. Only tuning was required, now tell me the money. He said ok wait.
He came after 15 minutes and handed me the bill. It was 3750 Rs.
I said it is not my car's bill. He said no, its yours. When I saw it, it had a long list of parts like engine foundations, gear oil, axle seal, gear lever seal, and many more parts. I said that these parts are not installed in my car. He said we have installed them in your car. I said how on earth is it possible, I kept standing near the bonnet during all this time. You have just cleaned the sparking plugs. I wasn't away even for a second. He called 7,8 other pathans and they all said that we have seen him installing those parts in your car. All of them were speaking pushto with each other and I couldn't understand them.
I said that I don't have money and you have not installed a single part in my car, neither I have asked you to put any part in my car. He said ok if you don't have money then we are going to open up your engine and take our parts back. There was no one to take my side there. I was all alone in dishonest pathans. There was no police man from whom I could seek help.
Then 4 pathans sat in my car and ask me to drive. They said lets go to any ATM. I got out of the car as I knew they are planning to rob me.
In the end I gave them all the money I had i.e 1000 Rs. I told them that I am a student and I don't have money. They looked into my wallet and seeing it empty, they let me go.
