The inspector allegedly hid in the restroom and looked into a stall to peep at his fellow officer on Wednesday. The female officer spotted him and screamed for help.

After apologizing, the officer said, “I walked in, thinking that it was a male restroom. But I heard a woman’s voice and peeped into the cubicle to check.”

He has been suspended from his post and faces a decision by a police disciplinary committee.
