Fake Doctor in Delhi AIIMS, police arrest the accused

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has debarred a senior faculty of microbiology department from guiding students for the next three years after a student attempted suicide, accusing her of harassment and abuse.

Police were surprised by his knowledge of medicine as well as doctors at AIIMS. He had accessed a diary issued to doctors.

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.

Due to his changing statements, police haven't been able to ascertain why he pulled off the fraud. He reportedly told the cops he liked the medical field so much that he wanted to become a doctor one day.

On Saturday when he participated in a marathon organized by the doctors, some of them got suspicious and questioned him about his identity.

"Khurram has been observing his activities in the campus for the past many months so I chose to keep a watch at him".

HT quoted the Resident Doctors' Association (RDA) chief Harjit Singh saying that he recently became suspicious of Khurram's activities after which he made a decision to keep a watch on him. When he could not give a satisfactory reply, he was overpowered and the police was informed.

But all his claims fell flat after the doctors found him participating in a marathon organised by the doctors on Saturday. According to a report in the English daily DNA, the man used to identify himself as a junior resident doctor and it was only after some doctors shared his photo (online) that he was caught by the security personnel at the hospital.

Deputy commissioner of police (south) Romil Baaniya said that Khurram had been booked under sections 468 (forgery for goal of cheating) and 419 that pertains to impersonation of the Indian Penal Code at Hauz Khas Police Station, HT reported.

Khurram has studied till Class X and has no criminal record. During investigation, it was found that Khurram had uploaded many photographs wearing a doctor's coat and stethoscope on social media. He had even made his way to the WhatsApp group. He further said that since AIIMS had some 2,000 resident doctors at the campus, it was hard to keep track of all of them, a fact that Khurram seemed to have used to his advantage.
