B’deshi becomes millionaire at UAE raffle draw

Two Indians and a Bangladeshi became millionaires in the UAE last week after emerging winners in separate raffle draws in the country.

Arjun Harish Nayaka and Vijayaram P.K. -- both Indians -- won $1.0 million each at Dubai Duty Free, while Jamal Hossain Bahar Habib Ullah Majumder from Bangladesh won a whopping Dh7.0 million at Big Ticket Abu Dhabi, said a report by http://www.khaleejtimes.com.

The two dollar millionaires at Dubai Duty Free won for tickets they purchased in the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire Promotion Series no. 244 and Series no. 245, respectively.

Nayaka, who works for an engineering consultancy in Dubai, was thrilled to hear the news of his new-found wealth and commented: "It's a truly memorable day for me and my family and I can't wait to share the news with my wife and son who are coming back to Dubai after a short holiday in India. We will be delighted to meet the Dubai Duty Free team who made this happen!"

Vijayaram, the other dollar millionaire, is a 46-year-old engineer working in the country.

Majumder, from Bangladesh, was the holder of ticket no. 030408 of Super7 Series 180.
