Indian accountant wins $1m in Dubai Duty Free raffle

Dubai: An Indian accountant became richer by $1 million on Tuesday after he won at the Dubai Duty Free raffle.

Praveen Aranha, an Indian national living in Dubai for 16 years, held ticket number 3069 in Series 312.

Aranha will be sharing the prize money with two of his colleagues, who had shared the cost of the ticket with him.

“I will save a portion for my daughter’s education who is currently in the United States studying business administration,” Aranha said.

“This is an amazing win and I think everybody should give it a chance, expect the unexpected.”

Aranha is the 151st Indian national to have won $1 million since its inception in 1999.
