KOCHI: A Keralite expat won 20 million dirhams (approximately Rs 39 crore) in a monthly lottery in the United Arab Emirates. Abdussalam N V (28), who runs a shopping centre in Muscat won the raffle, the first draw of this year.
Though the Kozhikode native won the Big Ticket Abu Dhabi draw on Sunday, he came to know about it only after a day as the organizers of the raffle could not locate him and break the news. The organizers even approached community members to reach out to Abdussalam. Later, he came to know about the win from his friend. He told a newspaper in the UAE over the phone from Muscat that he would share the prize amount with his friends who were part of drawing the ticket.
