AIIMS bars professor from guiding PhD students for three years

AIIMS bars professor from guiding PhD students for three years

The 36-year-old PhD student from the Microbiology department had allegedly attempted suicide at his residence in Gautam Nagar by overdosing on drugs on March 25 and had accused his supervisor of mental harassment, abuse and delay in his fellowship.

The Hindu reports that the AIIMS Resident Doctors' Association (RDA) has issued a release with Khurram's photograph, saying security personnel have been alerted about his ruse. He had an Aadhaar card from Bihar that revealed that he belongs to village Baradi Bairiya in East Champaran district and was now residing at Batla House in Jamia Nagar.

The reason or motive behind his act is still unclear, the police said, because his statements keep changing.

After the arrest by the police, the accused managed to shock the Delhi police with his "knowledge" of medicines, names of the departments, heads and doctors at the AIIMS. Police said through social media, Khurram approached a doctor staying at the hostel and they became friends. Although, one major reason was to get his family members preferential treatment at AIIMS, the other was due to his liking for the profession.

Despite Trilateral Attacks OPCW Will Continue Douma Chemical Weapons Investigation
Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's United Nations ambassador, said Russia has "clear evidence" that the chemical attack was staged. A number of NGOs, including the White Helmets, stated that chemical weapons were used in Eastern Ghouta on April 7.

According to RDA president Harjit Singh, Khurram had been observing his activities in the campus for the past many months and chose to keep a watch. He would roam around the campus wearing the lab coat and stethoscope all the time. The police arrested Adnan Khurram on April 14. AIIMS officials said the impersonation was discovered after a complaint by doctors to authorities, alleging that they had identified an "impostor" who used the hospital as a platform to attend "different political and medical events".

Financial Express reports that Khurram was charged under IPC Sections 419 (impersonation) and 468 (forgery for objective of cheating) at Hauz Khas police station and has been lodged in Tihar Jail, DCP (south).

On Saturday, when he the accused Khurram participated in a marathon organised by the doctors, some doctors got suspicious and asked him about his identity. To some, he would claim to be a junior resident doctor and to the junior resident doctors he would regard himself as an undergraduate medical student.

"As AIIMS consists of at least 2,000 resident doctors, it is very hard to know each and every person personally". Since he failed to come up with a satisfactory answer, the group of doctors overpowered him, and then handed him over to the police, HT reported.
