West Midlands police officers face drug dealing charges

Two police officers have been charged with drugs and misconduct offences.

PC Wahid Husman, 47, and PC Tahsib Majid, 35, have been suspended by West Midlands Police following raids.

They are charged with conspiracy to possess Class A and Class B drugs with intent to supply, conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office and conspiracy to steal.

The pair, who are based at Perry Barr Police Station in Birmingham, are due before magistrates later.

PC Majid faces a separate charge of unlawful disclosure of personal information.

Six more men will appear in court alongside the officers to face drugs and corruption charges.

They are Imran Rehman, 42; Shazia Qayum, 36; Asam Qayum, 28; Shazad Mushtaq, 42; Akeesh Rasab, 27, and Imaan Haidri, 25.

The men were arrested on Tuesday in raids by West Midlands Police's counter corruption unit.
