Still Waters Posted September 27, 2022 #1 Share Posted September 27, 2022 (IP: Staff) · An Indian lottery winner has said he is so overwhelmed with requests for financial help that he regrets getting the jackpot. Anoop, an auto driver from the southern state of Kerala, had won 250mn rupees ($3.06m, £2.9m) in a state government lottery earlier in September. But a week later, he posted a video requesting strangers to stop bothering him and his family. "I wish I hadn't won," he says. "The third prize may have been better." Anoop says in the video that he is considering moving houses to escape the overwhelming public attention. He had made national headlines when he won the prize, the highest ever offered in the state for a lottery. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-63030960 4 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
