Disabled KBC participant allowed to encash prize money!
Anuradha Agarwal is a physically disabled person from Mungeli district in Chhattisgarh.
She recently came into news for participating in the Indian television game show Kaun Banega Crorepati. Anuradha Agarwal works as an administrative officer in Chhattisgarh.
Anuradha won Rs 15 lakh at the show. She had announced that she would use the amount for the treatment of her brother who was fighting cancer at a hospital in Kolkata.
However, her department had denied permission to be a part of KBC and that letter came after Anuradha had already participated in the show.
The matter was raised on social media and the state government reversed its earlier decision and gave permission to Agarwal to participate in the show.
This means that Anuradha can now encash the amount she had won.
