Fake Doctor in Delhi AIIMS, police arrest the accused

In a case that brings up hard questions on the wellbeing and security of patients at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), a man was arrested for allegedly impersonating a doctor for 5 months in the nation's premier medical facility.

For five months, Adnan Khurram had access to the country's premier medical institute, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). He had been living in Batla House, near Jamia Nagar in New Delhi. He used his forged identity to make friends across departments and among medical students.

Khurram, whose papers reveal that he is a resident of Bihar, was active on social media, posting pictures at various medical and even political events, wearing a lab coat to pass off as a doctor.

Sources confirmed that there is also a medical diary issued in the name of Adnan Khurram.

The reason or motive behind his act is still unclear, the police said, because his statements keep changing. One of the reasons he had given for his crime was to help an ailing family member get preferential treatment. RDA president Harjit Singh said that he had grown suspicious of Khurram as he always found him loitering around in the campus and hence made a decision to keep a watch on him.

On Saturday, the doctors at the hospital organised a marathon and, as usual, Khurram came to take part in it.

HT quoted the Resident Doctors' Association (RDA) chief Harjit Singh saying that he recently became suspicious of Khurram's activities after which he chose to keep a watch on him.

Deputy commissioner of police (south) Romil Baaniya said Khurram was handed over to them on Saturday and has been charged under sections 419 (impersonation) and 468 (forgery for goal of cheating) of the Indian Penal Code at Hauz Khas Police Station. To some, he would claim to be a junior resident doctor and to the junior resident doctors he would regard himself as an undergraduate medical student. "He had even made his way to the WhatsApp groups".

The police, however, said Khurram had no criminal record.

There are 2,000 resident doctors at AIIMS, so it's hard to know everyone. When he couldn't manage to give a legitimate identity proof, he was then handed over to the police for investigation. He has posted photographs of him with politician as well.
