As it is commonly said that dreams come true in Dubai, a Pakistani expat tried his luck and won a luxury car, Bentley Bentayga V8, at a Dubai Duty Free (DDF) raffle draw held on Tuesday.
Working as a salesman in the UAE business hub, Anjum Ashraf, 46, hailed from Karachi with a ticket number 1,676 that was picked from a series 1,747, Gulf News reported.
“I just got the call from the organisers of DDF. I am truly elated,” the fortunate man exclaimed. He had no idea on the actual cost of the car that his fortune had gifted him.
A quick search shows a new 2020 model Bentley Bentayga V8 starts from Dh950,000 to Dh1.8 million, depending on the configuration and specs.
Ashraf earns Dh7,000 as a salesman. Needless to say that he is excited with the win. "I still cannot believe it,” he happily shared.
In a similar bid, an Indian man named Jagdish Ramnani, 42, became the latest million dollar winner at the Dubai Duty Free draw along with Nazeerunnisa Fazal Mohammad, 37, hailing from Hyderabad who won a an Aprilla Dorsoduro 900 (motorbike).
Mohammad, who is currently working as a software engineer, has been regularly buying the DDF tickets and she bought her winning ticket on January 10 online.
“I have been trying my luck for the million dollar series, hopefully it will be soon,” she said.
