A HILLING­DON po­lice of­fi­cer has been dis­missed from the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice for dis­cred­itable con­duct af­ter be­ing con­victed of as­sault.

PC Ma­lik Khan, who was part of the Uxbridge North team, car­ried out the at­tack on June 12 2016, and was con­victed of com­mon as­sault by beat­ing at Read­ing Mag­is­trates Court on May 16.

At a sen­tenc­ing hearing on June 6, the 29-year-old was given a three-year re­strain­ing or­der as well as a com­mu­nity or­der to com­plete 120 hours of un­paid com­mu­nity work within 12 months.

Khan, of Aus­tralia Av­enue, Maiden­head, was or­dered to pay £620 in costs and an £80 vic­tim sur­charge.

A spe­cial case hearing held on Tues­day (Septem­ber 5) found Khan had breached Stan­dards of Pro­fes­sional Be­hav­iour in such a way that the only ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion was dis­missal with­out no­tice.

As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Pat Gal­lan, who chaired the hearing, said: “PC Khan’s be­hav­iour fell well be­low the stan­dards that must be ex­pected of a po­lice of­fi­cer.

“The con­vic­tion of any po­lice of­fi­cer for such an of­fence will very ob­vi­ously un­der­mine that trust the pub­lic places in us, there­fore the only ap­pro­pri­ate out­come is dis­missal.”

The con­vic­tion on any po­lice of­fi­cer will un­der­mine pub­lic trust
