Delhi man poses as AIIMS doctor for sister's speedy treatment, arrested

Delhi man poses as AIIMS doctor for sister's speedy treatment, arrested

Once caught, it turned out that the imposter is not an AIIMS doctor and not even a medical student elsewhere.

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 used his forged identity to make friends across departments and among medical students. The AIIMS resident doctors" association were surprised by his "knowledge' of medicines, the names of doctors and department heads at AIIMS.

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.

But Adnan Khurram's impersonating ended on Saturday when he came to the hospital to attend an internal marathon for resident doctors when he was spotted by a security guard.

On Saturday, he arrived at a doctors' marathon. Police have said that Khurram's sister has blood cancer and is being treated at AIIMS. To seniors he introduced himself as a junior resident doctor while to junior resident doctors, he would introduce himself as an undergraduate medical student.

While police are still not clear why Khurram posed as a doctor as he has been frequently changing statements, one of the reasons given by the 19-year-old is that he had to help an ailing family member get preferential treatment.

"He even made his way to WhatsApp groups", said Resident Doctors Association President Harjit Singh. 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.

"He would roam around wearing the lab coat and stethoscope all the time".

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. When he could not give a satisfactory reply, he was overpowered and the police was informed.

Khurram who belongs from Sitamarhi district of Bihar has been a book under sections of 491 and 468 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at south Delhi based Hauz Khas police station and was later sent to Tihar.

There were also photographs of him with politicians.
