The 40-year-old man from Karnataka’s Afzalpura was put behind bars in a murder case while doing his MBBS in 1997.

Fourteen years of his life in prison has not demoralized Subhash Patil from accomplishing his dream of becoming a doctor.

"I joined MBBS in 1997. But, I was jailed in a murder case in 2002. I worked at the jail''s OPD and was released in 2016 for good conduct. I completed my MBBS in 2019," Mr Patil said.

Earlier this month, Subhash Patil finished a one-year unavoidable internship for getting the MBBS degree.

Police took Subhash in custody in 2002 in a murder case when he was in his third year of MBBS. A court passed a judgement sentencing him to life imprisonment in 2006.

He was jailed but he did not abandon his childhood ambition of becoming a doctor. In 2016, Subhash was released on Independence day for his good behaviour.
