Pc’s lover denies any part in crime
6:30am Friday 17th January 2014 in News
THE lover of a Pc accused of using police files to cash in on personal injury claims has denied forcing her to do it.
Pc Sugra Hanif, of Banbury, is on trial at Winchester Crown Court charged with obtaining and disclosing personal data from Thames Valley Police’s (TVP) control and command system, and conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office.
She denies the charges and alleges her boyfriend Raza Khan coerced her to log into police computers, contact those involved in car accidents, and pressure them to make accident claims.
It is alleged the pair and Khan’s wife, Paramjeet Kaur, pocketed £700 a time for referring crash victims to legal firms.
When arrested, Khan, from Birmingham, told officers the policewoman’s version of events was “100 per cent lies” and added “I have no idea what she has been up to”.
In a police interview read to court, Khan admitted to an affair with the 27-year-old, which involved meeting for sex at hotels.
But he dismissed Hanif’s accusation that he made her steal accident details and claimed he didn’t know where information she passed on to him came from.
Khan also denied using sex tapes to pressure Hanif into stealing police details or recording her first call to a claimant.
He is also charged with obtaining personal data from TVP control and command system and one count of conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office. The trial continues.
