Punjab Police win LotteryJune 27th 2019 11:48
Ashok Kumar, a Punjab Police constable from the village of Motian in Hoshiarpur has had an amazing streak of good fortune and can now look forward to being a crorepati. Kumar won Rs 2 crore in the Punjab New Year Lohri Bumper-2019 on Sunday 23rd June.
From Cop to Crorepati
He was quite fortunate though because he initially thought that he had lost his ticket, but like any good police officer, he had thought about the problem carefully and traced the ticket’s whereabouts to his desk drawer in Hoshiarpur Police Station. The 30-year-old policeman now says that he has plans to repay a personal loan, as well as build his own home and help his two younger bothers a little bit.
