Pakistani Man Wins Luxury Bike In Dubai Lucky Draw, But Can’t Be Reached
A Pakistani man on Monday won a BMW luxury motorbike in Dubai but authorities said he could not be reached to claim the prize.
According to reports, Pakistani expat Muhammad Safdar won the latest model of a BMW S 1000 R in Series 363 with ticket no. 0941. But the authorities could not reach him to hand over his prize.
The prize was won in Dubai Duty Free’s Millennium Millionaire raffle. An 9-year-old Indian girl won a whooping $1 million prize. Along with her, two others won a luxury motorbike, each.
The 9-year-old girl who won a million dollars did collect her prize.
Her father said that with nine (9) as his lucky number, he decided to buy ticket No. 0333 online under his daughter’s name, Eliza. The youngster is no newcomer to winning Dubai Duty Free promotions as she also previously won a McLaren Coupe in Series 1513 with ticket number 1867 in January 2013.
He said he had been buying lottery tickets for years, but it was only until he bought the ticket in his daughter’s name that he managed to claim the prize.
In March, a Pakistani national living in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was awarded an ‘act of bravery’ award for foiling robbery.
The Pakistani expat, identified as Mazzaffar Hussain Nathar, helped the law enforcement agencies arrest a wanted criminal. He chased down the criminal until police came and arrested him.
Deputy General Commander of Sharjah Police Brigadier Abdullah Mubarak bin Amir acknowledged Muzzaffar’s efforts saying that the Pakistani national was a role model for others.
Hussain thanked the dignitaries and said the award was to motivate others to cooperate with and help the police fight crime.
