The reason as to why Khurran posed as a doctor at hospital is still unknown to the police because he has been constantly changing his statements during the police investigation. The accused, Adnan Khurram, delved into his "character" of a doctor so much that he somehow got his name printed in the doctors' diary, participated in the programmes meant for the AIIMs doctors, and posted pictures with stethoscope and white coat on social media more often. The accused, identified as Adnan Khurram, had even used his fake identity to befriend employees across departments in the hospital and make friends with medical students, the Hindustan Times reported. "We started doubting his credentials and then we found that he is not from any of our departments", said Dr Abhishek Singh, vice-president, Resident Doctors' Association, AIIMS.
The chief resident Doctor's Association, Harjit Singh said, "He would roam around wearing the lab coat and stethoscope all the time". He also said that he liked to spend time with doctors. One of the reasons he said he wanted he help one of his family members get better treatment through preferred doctors. We found out that he made different claims to different doctors.
Once caught, it turned out that the imposter is not an AIIMS doctor and not even a medical student elsewhere.
Meanwhile, a case under sections 419 (impersonation) and 468 (forgery for objective of cheating) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against Khurram at the Hauz Khas police station. "He made his way to the WhatsApp grpups of the doctors as well".
Nationwide Outage Shuts Down Woolworths
The supermarket giant has not yet revealed the cause of the outage. "We apologise for any inconvenience caused". Staff said every register in every store nation wide has shut down.
Singh said since AIIMS has around 2,000 resident doctors, it is hard to know each and every person individually and Khurram took the fact as an advantage and avoided being caught. According to Financial Express, doctors became suspicious of Khurram when he was attending a marathon on Saturday. When he could not give a satisfactory reply, they called the police. There are also photographs of him with politicians. The doctors have shown apprehensions as such cases are becoming regular where commoners are being caught as fake doctors inside the hospital premises. The newspaper report mentions that a medical booklet was recovered from him which is an exclusive for the doctors of AIIMS.
