Oldest human aged 146 passes away
London: A Indonesian man, who claimed(दावा किया) to be the world’s oldest person has died at the age of 146. Mbah Gotho was born in 1870 say his documents. A lifelong heavy smoker(आजीवन भारी धूम्रपानकर्ता), Sodimedjo — as he was also known — was taken to the hospital last month because of deteriorating(बिगड़ती) health.
He discharged himself six days later and ate only porridge(खिचडी) until he died a few days later, his grandson Suyanto told the BBC.
“Since he came back from the hospital, he only ate porridge and drank very little,” relative said. However, doubts have been raised about his claim as Indonesia did not begin to record new births until 1900.
Mr Gotho’s claim to be the world’s oldest human hit the headlines last summer when officials in home town of Sragen, Central Java, verified his age.
