DSP Suresh Kumar, head of the team investigating the cases, said the cop’s wife was shifted to ICU after a caesarean delivery around 1 am. Around 3.20 am, a man came into the ICU in a doctor’s attire.

The cop’s wife had urged a nurse to call her husband and then informed him of the incident. The cop lodged an FIR against an unidentified man.

“The accused’s face is clearly visible in the CCTV footage. We are getting the footage from other places in Bahadurgarh as well to trace his movement. His pictures will be circulated,” the police said.

Apparently, the same man went to another private hospital on the same road after some time. “Here again, he went to a woman and pretended to be a doctor. However, as soon as he started touching her, she raised an alarm. He escaped before anyone could act,” the DSP added.

CCTV cameras in the other hospitals captured the accused. However, as his face was covered, police have not been able to identify him from other hospitals’CCTV footages, the police reported.

An official from the hospital, where the victim was admitted, said they were looking into the lapses in security added, “there are eight beds. Beds on either side of the alleged victim are occupied but no one heard any noise,” the report further added.
