A detective based at Tower Hamlets has been dismissed from the Met Police after being arrested and convicted of assault.
Det Con Asweina Gutty faced allegations of “discreditable conduct” at a special hearing on Friday following her court appearance in July.
She had pleaded guilty at Hendon Magistrates’ Court to a charge of assault by beating in an incident on May 27 while off-duty.
She was handed her a 12-month community order and a 100 hours’ unpaid work order in September by Central London magistrates, who also ordered her to pay £200 court costs, £100 compensation and £85 victim surcharge.
Friday’s special Met Police hearing considered Gutty’s work record and several character references, but ruled that the allegations of discreditable conduct were proved as gross misconduct.
