Kashif Mahmood, 32, a former PC based on the Met Police's Central East team was dismissed from the force without notice in November 2020 after pleading guilty to conspiracy to acquire criminal property and misconduct in public office. He was sentenced at Southwark Crown Court today (Thursday, May 13). The court heard Mahmood, who was jailed for eight years, used police vehicles and resources to take cash from the couriers in carefully planned operations led by a contact orchestrating events through an encrypted communications network. In parallels to the BBC's hit drama Line of Duty, Mahmood's actions were uncovered by a painstaking investigation by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards’ Anti-Corruption Command.

. They also discovered that Maria Shah, 34, Mohsin’s partner, helped move and conceal proceeds. Mahmood, being a close friend of the Khan brothers, had used police vehicles to travel while in uniform to seize money from criminal couriers. He was also twice helped by Ioan Gherghel, 34, who illegally posed as a police officer. But the London gang weren't acting alone.

The conspiracy was orchestrated by a man based in Dubai who used EncroChat, an encrypted communications platform, to communicate using Moshin Khan as the main point of contact. Clearly concerned that fellow officers were catching on to his actions, Mahmood looked up police records to source intelligence about the EncroChat contact twice between July 2019 and January 2020.
