THE lover of a police officer who allegedly stole road crash victims’ details from her force’s computers got paid £600 a time to refer their compensation claims, a court heard.

Raza Khan rang a solicitor specialising in personal injury claims to say he ran a garage and wanted to pass on details of clients who were eligible for compensation.

He would be paid a £600 referral fee for each successful claim, a Winchester Crown Court jury heard yesterday.

Pc Sugra Hanif whom he was having an affair with, is accused of taking the phone numbers from Thames Valley Police logs.

Hanif, 27, of Bretch Hill, Banbury, denies obtaining personal data from TVP control and command system and a charge of disclosing the personal data.

Khan, from Birmingham, denies obtaining personal data from the TVP control and command system.

Paramjeet Kaur, also from Birmingham, who is accused of involvement in the crime, denies with Khan and Hanif conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office.

The case continues.
