A 22-year-old migrant worker from Bengal won a Rs one crore Kerala government lottery just three days after coming to the city looking for work.
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 at nearby Vellimadakunnu, police said. He won the 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.
