Daily wage worker wins Rs 1 crore lottery

1-crore-lotteryA 22-year-old migrant worker from Bengal won a Rs 1 crore Kerala government lottery just three days after migrating to Kerala’s Kozhikode city in search of livelihood.

Mofijul Rahana Sheikh, hailing from Lakshmipur of Malda district in West Bengal, purchased the ‘Karunya’ lottery ticket on March 4, the day he arrived here, for Rs 50 from a vendor. He won Rs one crore prize in the draw held the next day. Yesterday, he went to a police station and sought protection, fearing that other migrant workers in his group might attack him and take away the ticket. Police then took him to a bank, where he opened an account and submitted the ticket.
