NEW DELHI, Feb. 19 -- The world's oldest man is reportedly living in India.
Premsai Patel, a native of the central Indian state of Chhattisgarh's Korba district, has claimed that he was born on May 11, 1896, which makes him 117 years and 8 months old.
Even this retired government teacher's identity card bears the same date of birth, according to media reports Wednesday.
A senior Indian doctor has said that it is not possible for a human being to live beyond 117 years.
But, if it's true, then Patel has broken the record of 115-year- old Japanese national Misao Okawa.
