During counselling, the Counselling Committee of AIIMS observed that one of the successful candidates, namely Rajiv Kumar did not actually appear in the written examination held on 27.06.2001 at Cambridge School, Sriniwaspuri, New Delhi, rather, another person appeared in the exam impersonating himself as Rajiv Kumar.

Para-medical course on 27.06.2001 at Cambridge School, Sriniwaspuri, New Delhi where 8 instances of impersonation were detected by Counselling Committee.

In furtherance to the said criminal conspiracy, Alok Kumar & another private person visited Delhi from Bihar on 26.06.2001. They stayed in a hotel and visited Cambridge School at New Delhi. Alok Kumar appeared in the examination impersonating himself as Rajiv Kumar. Accused Rajiv Kumar was declared successful and in response to the call letter for counselling, Rajiv Kumar appeared before Counseling Committee of AIIMS. When Rajiv Kumar was asked about the details of examination, Rajiv Kumar confessed before the Counseling Committee that he had not appeared in the examination.
