Indian-origin Police Constable Found Guilty of Gross Misconduct

LONDON: An Indian-origin police constable has been found guilty of gross misconduct on Friday.

The Scotland Yard or Metropolitan Police concluded its inquiry of finding Hitesh Patel guilty at the end of the misconduct hearing.

Metropolitan Police said Patel’s actions in respect of authority, respect and courtesy; honesty and integrity; confidentiality; and discreditable conducts were proven as “gross misconduct”.

In a statement, the Met Police said, “This followed allegation that in 2016 and 2017, while a serving police officer, PC (police constable) Patel engaged in a course of conduct by which he sought to establish or pursue an improper or inappropriate sexual or emotional relationship with a female he came into contact with through his work.”

“It is further alleged that he misled a colleague as to how and why he had obtained the same female’s contact details,” it added.

“Patel accessed police indices without a proper policing purpose at that time and later,” noted Met Police.

Meanwhile, Patel resigned from the police force with effect from 15 September 2019.

Hitesh Patel earlier worked within Specialist Crime Unit of Scotland Yard.

Patel would have been dismissed without notice if he had still been a serving officer, discovers his misconduct hearing.
