The ‘oldest father of the world’ who fathered two children in his nineties, died in India at the age of 104 after his bed caught fire while smoking.
Ramjeet Ragav made headlines around the world in 2010 when his first son was born and again when he broke his own record two years later at the age of 96.
But the former wrestler died in the hospital after serious burns during the fire last Tuesday at his home in Kharkhoda, near New Dehli.
A neighbor said he ran to help after he heard his screams for help.
He said: “I saw smoke coming out of his house and then I heard him calling for help. I ran to him and saw him lying on the floor on fire.
“I splashed water on him and helped him to my vehicle before taking him directly to the local hospital.
“Doctors treated him immediately. His left side was badly burned. But the doctors there referred him to another hospital in Rohtak, so I admitted him and admitted him before I went home.

Happier times: Ramjeet Raghav made headlines around the world when he became the father of Vikramjeet, 94 years old in 2010. He beat his own record when his second son was born two years later
“The next day I was told that he had died.”
Ramjeet’s wife Shakuntala gave an incredible birth to their first son, Vikramjeet, in 2010 when she was 60 and he was 94.
In 2012 their second son Ranjeet was born.
Photos of the radiant couple were radiated all over the world and the couple even claimed to have sex in their cabin three times a night.
But the couple was confronted with a tragedy in May 2013, when their eldest son was torn from his mother’s arms and abducted.
Shakuntala was on her way to the hospital with Vikramjeet who had a fever but the child was abducted while she slept on a couch in a bus station during the trip.

Despite police investigation, he was never found.
Ramjeet got more heartache six months later when Shakuntala left him and their youngest son took Ramjet.
Ramjeet said at the time: “I have no idea where she went. I was outside and when I returned, she and my younger son were gone.
“My life is a waste in itself. I used to eat well, but now because of the stress I don’t eat. I can survive without food. But what kind of life is this? Only I know who suffers the pain.
‘I miss my children; I feel it is better to die because I can never forget them. “
Tragically, Ramjeet has never seen his wife and sons again.
He was cremated by his community in Sonipat, Haryana, on February 13.
