Idukki(Ker): A 42-year-old police officer who sneaked into the labour ward of a private hospital here wearing a burqa, has been suspended, police said Sunday.

The incident took place on Friday night at the Al Ashar Super Speciality hospital in the high range Idukki district.

There were 8 women along with their newborns in the ward, besides some relatives of the patients and two nurses when Noor Sameer, a body builder, entered the ward clad in the garment worn by Muslim women, Thodupuzha police Sub Inspector, V C Vishnukumar, said.

Upon noticing the 'woman's' footwear and stride, some of the bystanders grew suspicious and raised an alarm.
