With rumors amuck of late freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose making an appearance as the mysterious godman Gumnami Baba, Netaji’s driver Colonel Nizamuddin is now set to make headlines by opening a bank account at the ripe old age of 116-years.
According to Colonel Nizamuddin alias Saifuddin’s voter identity card and passport, which he produced as proof of identity before the State bank of India for opening the account, he was born in 1900.
In February this year, a Japanese man, who was believed to be the oldest man alive, passed away at the age of 114.
That way, Colonel Nizamuddin is the oldest human being alive on the planet right now as he completes 116-years 3 months and 14 days today.
Another startling aspect is that Colonel Nizamuddin’s wife, Ajbunisha, is 107 years old and the couple have opened a joint account with SBI.
Locals and the district administration were delighted to know about Colonel Nizamuddin amazing feat of being the oldest man alive. They are, infact, proud of the fact that such an elderly person is part of their neighbourhood.
