Dubai: A Malayali businessman, who has not even visited UAE or any other foreign country, has won Rs 6.48 crore ($ 10,00,000) worth Dubai Duty Free draw. Thrissur native Prabhin Thomas hit the jackpot when he tried his luck through online.
Prabhin runs an IT firm in Thrissur. The 40-year-old businessman happened to come across the advertisement of the Dubai Duty Free on internet and decided to try his luck.
But when somebody contacted him over phone and informed that he has won the prize, Prabhin did not believe it. He thought it was a fake call.
Later, Prabhin confirmed the news only after verifying his name in the list of winners on the website of Dubai Duty Free.
