Indian origin Scotland Yard police constable, PC Bhupinder Kalsi was fired after a Metropolitan Police Unsatisfactory Police Performance meeting on Monday (19).
The police department found her service was completely incompetent and she was guilty of unsatisfactory service.
The police constable was removed from the list of British police staff without any prior notice for failing to take care in her treatment and monitoring of a homeless man after pushing him out of a police station in West London.
Greek national Pericles Malagardis (63) who took shelter at Heathrow Airport had moved to Uxbridge police station to collect his dog on March 4, 2016. Greek national lost his life following hypothermia after he was forced by the PC to leave the police station for smoking inside the station.
UK’s Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC), the independent police watchdog, had referred the case to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to consider charges of gross negligence manslaughter.
“We found there was not enough evidence to prosecute for any offences and took no further action,” the CPS said in the case pertaining to the police constable.
The internal disciplinary panel investigation has found that “the police constable did not provide information requested by the LAS regarding actions taken to support Malagardis, and failed to follow instruction and training when dealing with unresponsive casualties, as set out in the ELS training manual.”
The panel added that the PC, “failed to exercise reasonable care in her treatment and monitoring of Malagardis, following his ejection from the front office.”
Bhupinder Kalsi was viewing a DVD while on duty, following Malagardis’ ejection from the front office/reception area, a proof for unsatisfactory performance of the constable, the panel concluded.
Meanwhile, in a separate disciplinary hearing, another police station staff member is facing a disciplinary hearing on the same incident in which Malagardis lost his life.
Once the internal Metropolitan police reviews are concluded, an inquiry into the death of Malagardis is likely to take place.
