Only In India! Tired Of Media Attention, Rs 1 Cr Lottery Winner Wants Police Protection

We all crave for fame and success but when it actually materialises, we tend to find it difficult on how to tackle it. The same thing happened to 70-year-old Indra Narayan Sen from West Bengal, the Times of India reported. The senior citizen had won a whopping Rs 1 crore lottery and after being bombarded with fame since becoming an overnight crorepati, he went to a nearby police station requesting for security. Sen had retired ten years back from his deep tubewell operator job. He stays in a small home at Sahapara village in East Burdwan's Kalna district and gets Rs 10,000 as monthly pension.

Sen had bought 10 daily Nagaland state lottery tickets for Rs 60. "I had gone to the Guptipara market and bought those tickets as an afterthought. I kept the tickets folded in my pockets and did not even bother to check the results", he said as quoted to as saying by TOI.

He didn't know about the results but it was the shopkeeper from whom he had purchased the lottery tickets, who informed Sen about his landmark victory. At first, Sen had found it difficult to fathom the fact that he was now a crorepati but after scrutinising the results rigorously, he realised that everything happening around him was true.

Sen feels the lottery win will help him lead a way better life than he is currently living in. He will get his winning amount in the next 3 months.

Sen wants to donate part of his money to build a Durga temple. The rest of the money, he wants to divide among his three sons and grandsons.

Here we have one man asking for security after winning a lottery and on the other hand, a Shiv Sena member in Maharashtra had given up two flats that he won in lottery citing bad vaastu.

According to ANI, Vinod Shirke, the shakha chief of Shiv Sena in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation gave up his costly flats in Mumbai. He had won two flats in December 2018, both valued at Rs 4.99 crore and Rs 5.80 crore each - the costliest flats in history to be ever sold in an MHADA (Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority) lottery.
