OMG such things can happen only in the national capital,
Adnan Khurram, a19-year-old Bihari graduate medical aspirant impersonating as a popular AIIMS doctor who participated in all strikes and marathons of the institution for the past five months is finally in police custody. The AIIMS resident doctors’ association were surprised by his ‘knowledge’ of medicines, the names of doctors and department heads at AIIMS.
Khurram has been charged under sections 419 (impersonation) and 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) of the IPC and he had come under the watch of the RDA who found him strange as he made different claims to different doctors and that he roams around wearing the lab coat and stethoscope all the time. To seniors he introduced himself as a junior resident doctor while to junior resident doctors, he would introduce himself as an undergraduate medical student.
AIIMS has around 2,000 resident doctors and on Saturday, he got caught while participating in a marathon by doctors where his real identity was exposed. He told police that, to give good treatment to a family member and his desire to be doctor drove him to this act.
