Store owner of Indian originNew York: Such a news has come out from Massachusetts, USA, which is a bit difficult to believe. A lottery ticket that was thrown away by a woman was considered worthless, a prize of crores came out on it, and then the owners of the store returned the ticket to the woman. Let us tell you that this woman named Lee Rose Fiega won a prize of one million dollars (about Rs 7.27 crore) in the Massachusetts State Lottery. However, he threw away his lottery ticket thinking that he had not received any reward on it.
Indian-origin Abhi Shah, whose family runs a Lucky Stop store in Southwick, said Fiega scratched the tcket inside the store and handed it to his mother. Fiega asked Shah’s mother to throw away the ticket. 10 days later, Shah began checking the worthless lottery tickets one by one again, and found that Fiega hadn’t completely scratched his lottery tickets. When he scratched the ticket properly, he found that there was a $10 million bounty on it.
‘We don’t want that money, return
it,’ said Abhi Shah’s father Mounish, ‘we could not sleep for two nights. Abhi then called up his grandparents, who live in India. They said return that lottery ticket to FIGA and we don’t want that money. Abhi Shah said that after this he informed Fiega about it. Talking to the media, Mounish said, ‘As soon as she came inside the store and I gave her her lottery ticket, she got emotional and started crying like a child.’ Mounish said that she sat on the floor of the store for some time.
