A 33-year-old Indian tailor has won two luxury cars and 100,000 dirhams in a raffle in Dubai.

Fasaludheen Kuttipalakkal from Kerala was the winner of the Infiniti Mega Raffle on the second day of the Dubai Shopping Festival 2014, organisers of the festival said.

Kuttipalakkal had been trying his luck at the raffle for the past 10 years without success.

The good luck was brought to him apparently by his baby, who is only three days old.

He has won two Infiniti top models - QX60 and G25 -besides a cash prize of 100,000 dirhams (Rs 16.9 lakhs).

Kuttipalakkal has been living in Dubai for 10 years and used to buy the raffle ticket with his friends. This year, he decided to buy the raffle ticket alone and had a strong gut feeling that he would take away the grand prize.

"In my heart, I knew that I am going to win this time. I was thrilled when I received the call. There could not be a better start to the New Year," Kuttipalakkal said.

He wants to give away one part of the cash prize to help his needy friends and family members back home and wants to put another chunk towards the construction of his house in Kerala.

He has not yet decided what he wants to do with the cars.
