Migrant worker wins RM7m jackpot

AN Indian national, who made his way to Singapore to eke out a living by operating a forklift, has become an overnight millionaire.

Karuppaiah Gobinath hit the mother lode when he won the S$2.3 million (RM7.15 million) jackpot in a Singapore Pools lottery.

Photos of him with the winning lottery ticket and a cheque for the S$2.3 million are being circulated on Facebook and WhatsApp. The cheque even appears to reveal his passport number. It was disbursed on Sept 13, 2017.
