Sacked Muslim police officer arrested over attack on OAP
A less than edifiying story fom the Sunday Mercury - a Midlands newspaper. From our non UK readers OAP stands for Old Age Pensioner.
A SACKED Muslim police officer is being held in connection with a doorstep attack on a Midland pensioner and three suspected hit-and-run incidents, the Sunday Mercury can reveal.
Khawaja Hasan, 33, was arrested following the attack on the 89-year-old pensioner outside his home in the village of Thurlaston, Warwickshire, last Sunday night.
The unnamed victim has undergone surgery for his injuries – a broken arm, broken leg and severe bruising – and remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.
Police say they are linking that assault with three other incidents which occurred shortly afterwards in the nearby villages of Broadwell and Leamington Hastings.
These included at least two alleged hit-and-run incidents in which two victims were struck by a car. Three people were hurt in total during the attacks, but none seriously.
The 33-year-old suspect was arrested near the scene of the fourth incident, in Leamington Hastings, and was detained under the Mental Health Act.
Police sources have revealed that the suspect is a former Metropolitan Police officer who was sacked from the force three years ago.
Khawaja Hasan, 33, hit the headlines in 2006 after he launched a claim of religious and racial discrimination after his dismissal for disciplinary offences.
The former police constable, who joined the Metropolitan police in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, claimed that he was treated differently from white officers and that he was subjected to two years of “race hell” by colleagues and bosses.
Hasan claimed that he had been “hounded out” of the Met on the basis of minor infringements of the rules, but that the underlying reason was discrimination.
Whatever his motive for these attacks he has certainly confirmed his total unsuitability to be a policeofficer.
