Convicted PC sacked from Thames Valley Police
8:05pm Wednesday 5th March 2014 in News
The police officer convicted of stealing and selling road crash victims’ details has been dismissed.
Last month PC Sugra Hanif, from Bretch Hill, Banbury, was found guilty of conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office.
The trial at Winchester Crown Court heard that the 26-year-old stole and sold on road crash victims’ details from the Thames Valley Police computer database.
Co-defendant and Hanif’s lover Raza Khan, 27, of Ivy Road, Handsworth, Birmingham, was also convicted after they were found guilty of working together on the scam.
Yesterday the force confirmed Hanif had been dismissed following a misconduct hearing.
Detective Chief Superintendent Tim De Meyer, head of Professional Standards, said: “The conduct of PC Hanif fell well below the standards that Thames Valley Police and the public expects of its officers.
"This was a serious case of corruption and it is entirely appropriate that she was dismissed from the force.”
Hanif is due to be sentenced at Winchester Crown Court on Friday.
