A police officer serving in the borough has been struck off after lying to protect his brother after a car crash.

PC Miladur Khan, 30, was attached to the Met’s East Area Command, covering Redbridge, Havering, and Barking and Dagenham.

After PC Khan and his brother were involved in a car crash in Burdett Road, Limehouse, on June 29 last year, the officer claimed that he had been driving the car.

However, Tower Hamlet’s Council CCTV footage from a traffic camera revealed he was actually a passenger at the time of the crash.

The 30-year-old later admitted that he lied in order to protect his younger brother Mured Khan, who had no insurance at the time, and he was promptly suspended from duty.

Pc Khan was charged with perverting the course of justice and on May 2, he was sentenced to six months imprisonment by a judge at Southwark Crown Court.

His brother Mured Khan, 26, of Stepney Way, Stepney, was disqualified from driving for six months and fined £200 by Thames Magistrates’ Court on April 12 for driving without insurance. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £30 and court costs of £85.

Following the criminal investigation, a misconduct hearing by the Metropolitan Police was held on July 27.

Khan was struck off from the force on the grounds that he had acted against the Standards of Professional Behaviour.

The panel found that PC Khan had not acted with “honesty and integrity” and had showed “discreditable conduct”, nor had he shown “respect and courtesy.”

The report states that Khan had acted “in such a serious way that this amounted to gross misconduct” and the 30-year-old was dismissed without notice.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, who chaired the panel, said he was disappointed by Khan’s actions.

He 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.”
