Medini Prasad Adhikari, 135, from Bahuntilpung-3, Sindhuli district is ill and is admitted to the Teaching Hospital, Maharajgunj, Kathmandu. The voters’ list at the District Election Office, Sindhuli mentions his birth year as 1876 A.D. (that makes him 134 years old)
In the Constituent Assembly election in 2008, he was 131 year old and was the oldest person to vote in Nepal. The event made news in national and international media at that time. But, nobody cared to verify the age.
If verified, he might be the one and the only person who managed to live that long. The oldest person in record was only 122 years old. The current record holder as per Guinness World Records, is 120 years old.
