Mr Korothan said a large part of the money will go towards his seven-year-old daughter’s education and towards a small business in luxury car rentals that he and his friends have started.

“It has been a tough month. I have had no work at all. I was in a desperate situation and about to send my family back. This win is nothing but a miracle,” he was quoted in the report.
