New Delhi : Pretending to be an AIIMS doctor from past five months, 19-year-old Adnan Khurram has been caught and handed over to police. He was very active in social events and protests.

"I met him for the first time in December when we were planning protests against the NMC bill. He was very active in all our meetings. We welcomed it because most doctors and MBBS students here are usually too tired after study and shifts to participate in volunteer activity," said Dr Harjit Singh Bhatti, president of the resident doctors’ association (RDA) at AIIMS.

The fake doctor also used RDA credentials to meet VIPs like Congress President Rahul Gandhi and former Bihar Chief Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav.

It was his active participation in social events that raised suspicion among other doctors.

"We were surprised that he could make it to all the events at AIIMS and even those organised by other medical organisations. He claimed to be a junior resident, who usually end up with 18-20 hour shifts. He used to hang out near the coffee shop or the doctors' hostel every evening. We started wondering how he had so much time," said Dr Bhatti.

RDA decided to cross check him and found that everything related to him was fake. Khurram never attended any class or treated any patient in history.
