India's oldest person Habib Miyan is no more. 138-year-old Habib, a popular trumpet player in the Royal Band of the Jaipur Palace, died at his residence on Tuesday.

He probably was the oldest living person in the world but the Guiness book of records didn't recognise him because his official age was eight years younger.

Christened Rahim Khan at birth, Habib Miyan's self professed date of birth is 20th May 1870, though his official age, on the basis of the pension records, has been certified as 20th May 1878.On Monday night, his health deteriorated and he passed away in Jaipur's SMS hospital.
