Krishnan received a sentence of three years and seven months imprisonment when he appeared in the Manukau District Court today.

Krishnan used fake documents, including a CV and practising certificate to land a job as a doctor in Middlemore hospital where he saw a total of 81 patients over a six-month period.

Another doctor raised the alarm when they recognised Krishnan from their university days in Auckland – in 2012 he was trespassed from the university when an investigation discovered he was a fake medical student.

Krishnan was also charged with offences relating to the filing of false affidavits in the High Court. Following a traffic charge in 2021 he sought a discharge without conviction. When that was denied he successfully appealed to the High Court using an affidavit which falsely claimed he was a practising doctor, and attaching fake letters from the Medical Council and Auckland District Health Board in support.
