Punjab constable celebrate his lottery win

If you ever wanted to see how dreams come true, you just have to look at the story of a Punjab constable who won the lottery.

Constable Kumar won the Lohri Bumper of Punjab Government which gave him a lottery prize of Rs 2 crore. Kumar, 29, joined the police service in 2010 and works at Sadar Police Station in Hoshiyarpur.

The lucky lottery winner said that he hardly ever bought lottery tickets but a lottery seller, who had come to the police station, persuaded him into buying the Lohri bumper ticket for Rs 200.”

“I had been thinking of buying a lottery ticket since long but never bothered to purchase one until Diwali last year when I bought my first lottery ticket, and this Lohri bumper ticket was my second one”.

It’s a good thing that he took the chance and bought the lottery ticket, as the lottery seller informed Kumar on January 16 that he had won the bumper prize.  However, he was also informed that he had to keep it a secret until the result was publicly announced by way of publication in the government gazette on the Saturday.

“It was really hard for me to believe. It is a huge amount for someone who hails from a middle-class family.”

The extremely happy constable said that he will be putting the money in the bank and continue with his job as he had worked very hard to get into the government service.

He went on to say, “The prize money will provide me with financial support” and “I will be able to perform my duty in a better way without worrying about my finances”.

Kumar stays with his family comprising his parents and two younger brothers in his native village, Moutian, in Mahilpur area of Hoshiarpur district.
