Two other Indians drove home luxury vehicles.

Dubai-based Indian national Santheesh Kumar became richer by $1 million on Tuesday when he won the Dubai Duty Free raffle.

Kumar, who was unavailable for comment, held ticket no. 0802 in series 264, and is the 125th Indian national to win $1 million at Duty Free since its inception in 1999.

The winning ticket was drawn by Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships defending champion and World No. 3 Elina Svitolina.

It was a lucky day for two other Indians as well, who won luxury vehicles in other raffles by the DDF.

Kayingil Mohamed Kutty, a 64-year old Keralite based in Sharjah, won a BMW 640i Gran Turismo (Jucaro Beige) in series 1678 with ticket number 1241.

Rejani Siby, another Indian expat from Dubai, won a BMW S 1000 RR motorbike in series 328 with ticket number 0232.

"I am thrilled to have won a luxury motorbike with my first ever ticket in the Dubai Duty Free promotion and I thank the Dubai Duty Free team for making my day a very memorable one!," she said.
