A police officer has been found guilty of assaulting a man at Stratford bus station.
Pc Taiyab Darr, who serves in Newham, had denied common assault but was found guilty on Thursday.
Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard how Pc Darr, 36, had assaulted the 24-year-old on April 7, 2014.
A report of wrongdoing was made by his colleagues and following an investigation by the directorate of professional standards, Pc Darr was charged with the assault.
He was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay costs of £500 and a £100 surcharge.
Dep Ass Comm Fiona Taylor, from the directorate of professional standards, said: “We are naturally disappointed that an MPS officer has been convicted of an assault.
“His behaviour clearly fell well below the high standards we expect of our officers and is it right that he was held to account in the criminal courts.”
