Alipurduar, 15th January: Paikus Bakala, a laborer of Santali Tea Garden of Kalchini block under Alipurduar district, saw a change in his fortunes with some unexpected turn of events.
The tea garden laborer won a jackpot of 1 crore rupees on a mere 6 rupees lottery ticket. Paikus Bakala is a resident of Thomas Line in the Santali Tea Garden.
Paikus apparently bought a ticket worth 6 rupees, on Tuesday evening, from Hasimara Chowpathi area. Staying humble, Paikus said that when he gets the reward money, he will donate some of it to the plantation church and the rest will help the underprivileged laborers of the tea garden.
