DUBAI: An Indian businessman has paid a whopping $9 million to buy a single-digit car registeration plate in Dubai, adding another coveted number plate to his collection.
Balwinder Sahani bought number plate "D5" for 33 million Dirhams at the Roads and Transport Authority's number plate auction on Saturday.
Sahani, also known as Abu Sabah, is the owner of RSG International, a property management company, with interests in the UAE, Kuwait, India and the US.
"I like collecting unique number plates and I am proud to have got this number. I like number nine and D5 adds up to nine, so I went for it," Sahani was quoted as saying by the Gulf News.
there is no limit how far an idiot & nonsense guy can go. super duper idiot man which has no heart, he only lives for himself & his super crazy passions
Rightly said!! And the crazy crack pot is proud of his ''silly acquisition''.
It''s crazy.. crazy.. world out there.....!
Easy money from customers / innocents..... lavishly spent irrationally..! !
Sits his money , what he does is his business
Only stupid indians can do this, when so many people sleep hungary.
hey. spend that money on poor in india....build schools...hospitals.....they need people like you to help out..not collect licence plates
This man should be slapped 9 million times. But still I doubt his senses will return to normalcy. What a waste man and what a waste of money. If he had so much extra money with him he could have given it to the needy or people who are suffering from terminal illness & cannot afford treatment.
that is the difference- Bill Gates the richest lives a mediocre like- spending all his billions in finding cure for diseases, how to get clean drinking water to masses in Africa and India and so many worthy causes- and here is this idiot who is not worth this screen space on my laptom.
It''s his money and his choice.
Sure we may have an opinion but really, let''s back off !!
Ha ha ha, lots of people commenting about charity? How much charity, ''have you done'' ? You people can easily afford $1 per month but still wont give anything. Also, its his hard work money, let him do what ever he wants to do
