Thames Valley Police officer accused of mortgage fraud has case dismissed

A detective accused of obtaining a mortgage by deception has had the case against him dismissed.

Det Sgt Narinder Sahota, 50, of Thames Valley Police, was charged alongside his wife Rajinder, 51, in January 2012.

The case against them was thrown out during a trial at Kingston Crown Court earlier this month.

Det Sgt Sahota, who was based at Windsor Police Station, had been suspended from duty. He later resigned.

He had faced charges of obtaining a mortgage by deception, defrauding Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and perjury.

Mrs Sahota was charged with obtaining a mortgage by deception and defrauding HMRC.
