19-year-old imposter who acted as a doctor at AIIMS arrested

AIIMS debars faculty for harassing student

A 19-year-old medical aspirant was pretending to be an AIIMS doctor for the past five months. The matter of lives and deaths of innocent patients held at risk while these fake doctors pose as their life-saver maybe prescribing wrong medical treatments and medicines as well.

A resident of Batla House near, Jamia Nagar, Adnan Khurram originally hailed from Bihar.

. He used his forged identity to make friends across departments and among medical students.

"In a recent letter to the authorities of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), the Resident Doctors" Association (RDA) showed concern over an imposter on the campus, impersonating a junior resident doctor.

Sources confirmed that there is also a medical diary issued in the name of Adnan Khurram. But later, he has reported to have said that he used to do so because he liked the company of doctors and wanted to be a doctor. "Also, she will not be guiding any student for the next three years", said an AIIMS doctor and member of the committee.

Khurram was arrested on Saturday after he participated in a marathon organized by the doctors, where a few senior doctors questioned him about his identity.


RDA president Harjit Singh said Khurram had been noticing his activities in the medical campus for the past many months and chose to keep a watch. "We started doubting his credentials and then we found that he is not from any of our departments", wrote Dr Abhishek Singh, vice-president, Resident Doctors' Association, AIIMS. We found out that he made different claims to different doctors. "He had even made his way to the WhatsApp groups", said Singh.

Khurram has been booked under IPC sections 419 (impersonation) and 468 (forgery for objective of cheating) at Hauz Khas Police Station.

Police said Khurram had no criminal record, but had posted photos of himself in white coats and wearing stethoscopes on social media.

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 confronted, he could not produce any proof of identity and the doctors called the police and handed him over to the police. There are also photographs of him with politicians.
