BERLIN:  A 33-year-old Indian-origin Singaporean woman has said that she was "humiliated" by airport security in Frankfurt when was told to squeeze her breast at Frankfurt airport to prove she was lactating, a media report said today. The woman, a manager at a transport company who has a three-year-old child and a seven-month-old baby, added that she has filed a complaint with German police.

She told the BBC she was "humiliated" and "very traumatised" by the experience and would explore formal legal action.

She said police at Frankfurt Airport were suspicious because she was carrying a breast pump but travelling without her baby.

German police declined to comment on the specific allegations, the report said. But they said such measures were "clearly" not part of routine procedure.


Inside the room, "She asked me to open up my blouse and show her my breast... She wanted me to show her by hand-expressing a little." The woman said she complied and squeezed her breast.
