An officer has been dismissed for perverting the course of justice.
PC Miladur Khan, 30, attached to East Area Command, was formally dismissed from the Metropolitan Police Service on Thursday, 27 July following a special case misconduct hearing.
The officer faced charges of a breach of Standards of Professional Behaviour, in respect of: 'Discreditable Conduct', 'Honesty and integrity' and 'Authority, Respect and Courtesy'.
PC Khan pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice following a road traffic collision in Tower Hamlets on Tuesday, 2 May at Southwark Crown Court.
On Tuesday, 30 May, PC Khan was sentenced to six months' imprisonment.
The Chair found the allegations proven and that the officer had breached the standards of professional behaviour in such a serious way that this amounted to gross misconduct. The chair determined that the only appropriate sanction was dismissal without notice.
Chair, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said: "This officer has let himself, his family and his colleagues down. Our communities expect the highest standards of integrity from our officers and in this case the officer failed to meet these standards. I found that the only suitable sanction was dismissal without notice."
