Bihari graduate gets away as a doctor @ AIIMS

Impostor nabbed from AIIMS Delhi Bihari graduate gets away as a doctor @ AIIMS

In a scene that seems inspired straight from a Bollywood non-brainer, a man with no medical education was caught in Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) posing as a junior doctor. He even managed to befriend doctors and medical students across departments using his fake identity.

They still aren't sure why Adnan Khurram did it, but suspect he was trying to get faster treatment for his cancer-diagnosed sister.

Khurram was caught during a marathon when some doctors became suspicious and questioned him.

Subsequently, the police were informed and he was arrested. "The professor will not be guiding any student for the next three years", said a senior doctor at AIIMS. Another reason given by him is that he liked spending time with the doctors because he wanted to join the medical profession, the daily quoted police officers as saying.

The police said Khurram had no criminal record.

The chief resident Doctor's Association, Harjit Singh said, "He would roam around wearing the lab coat and stethoscope all the time".

Khurram has been charged under sections 419 (impersonation) and 468 (forgery for objective of cheating) of the IPC and he had come under the watch of the RDA who found him unusual as he made different claims to different doctors and that he roams around wearing the lab coat and stethoscope all the time.

Khurram used to carry a diary that other doctors used to carry to make the security at the gate believe that he is a part of the staff. Khurram also tried coming closer to the existing staff and doctors in AIIMS.

From the identity cards recovered from the fake doctor, it was revealed that he belongs to village Baradi Bairiya in East Champaran district and was now residing at Batla House in Jamia Nagar.

Khurram has been booked under IPC sections 419 (impersonation) and 468 (forgery for objective of cheating) at Hauz Khas Police Station. "He had even made his way to the WhatsApp groups", Singh told the daily.

According to Singh, there are around 2, 000 resident doctors at AIIMS and it is quite hard to know each and every person individually, so Khurram used this issue to his advantage and never got caught by anyone. The police also found some pictures of him posing in a doctor's uniform.
