An Indian former wrestler and farmer, Ramjeet Ragav, who welcomed his first son at 94 and second, at 96, has lost his life to severe burns during a blaze in his home.
Mr Ragav who made major headlines in 2010 after breaking a world record died in a hospital, last Tuesday last week at his home in Kharkhoda, near New Dehli.
A neighbor, simply identified as Mr Subodh who was at the scene after hearing Ragav’s cries for help said: “I saw smoke coming from his home and then I heard him calling for help. I ran over and saw him lying on the floor on fire.
“I splashed water on him and helped him to my vehicle before I took him straight to the local hospital.
“Doctors gave him immediate treatment, but his left side was badly burnt. The doctors referred him to another hospital in Rohtak, which I took him to and admitted him before going home.
“The following day I was told he had died.”
Ragav’s wife, Shakuntala gave birth to their first son, Vikramjeet, in 2010 when she was 60 and he was 94. In 2012, they welcomed their second son Ranjeet, at 62 and 96 respectively.
At that time, the couple claimed to have sex three times a night in their hut in Kharkhoda, Sonipat, outside the Indian capital of New Delhi.
