Man from Slough jailed for trying to cover up traffic offence for money

A 41-year-old man from Slough who offered to make a friend’s traffic offence ‘go away’ for money has been jailed.

Rajender Singh, aged 35, of Hubbards Close in Uxbridge, received a notice of intended prosecution after driving through a level crossing at White Hart Lane in London when the lights were on red in April 2017.

His friend, Paramjeet Talwar, of Furnival Avenue, Slough, told Singh that he could make the offence ‘go away’, in return for £250.

Talwar gave him fake details to give to authorities, which British Transport Police found out to be false.

He then submitted a provisional driving licence on behalf of Singh.

Officers investigated this because no person with a provisional licence was insured on the car at the time of the incident.

In an interview, Singh admitted to lying and paying Talwar.

The pair were arrested and both pleaded guilty to one count of perverting the course of justice at Blackfriars Crown Court on Wednesday, February 14.

Talwar received an eight week prison sentence and was lumped with £615 in costs.

Singh was also jailed for eight weeks, told to pay £615 in costs and received four points on his licence and a £350 fine for driving without due care and attention.

PC Julian Mason said: “Had Singh admitted the original offence after driving through the level crossing barriers, he could have most likely received three points and a fine.

“But because he tried to pull the wool over our eyes, he’s learned the hard way, that honesty is the best policy.

“After a thorough investigation and a lot of hard work, I’m pleased this has paid off and the sentence sends the right message to people that try to lie and think they can get away with it.”

    I wish the Police would put in as much effort in to stop the drug dealers openly dealing where I live,(Despite being informed of them)and you will probably delete this post.

      The police here are getting paid off to not investigate the open '24 hour drugs supermarket' in known locations in Slough (mostly car parks and areas around parks). I wrote to the Chief Constable of TVP several months ago, reporting these public, open drugs markets. He wrote back promising to investigate, and put an inspector in charge of making sure this was done. The inspector wrote to me saying that he undertook to send 2 patrols out a day to these known drugs spots. This was, apparently, never done. Slough police were put under investigation by internal affairs, who spied on them with surveillance equipment. They suspected payoffs and bribery from crime chiefs in the local area. It ended up with one cop being sacked for lying about military service (ostensibly) and 2 others for ignoring hare hounding (ostensibly). The purge needs to go on, but the people in charge of investigation are too afraid of TVP's public embarrassment, and are covering up the reasons why they're transferring, suspending and sacking officers left, right and centre here. Lots of triumphalism by the cops in this minor traffic case. But no word in the news or on any TVP websites or news about the stolen motorcycle and hit-and-run at Red Cow roundabout over a week ago. Be very careful with Slough police. They are corrupt and in the pockets of crime gangs. You will find video footage of their unprofessionalism on Youtube. TVP sends bad eggs to Slough, good ones to Royal Boroughs, Henley, Ascot, Oxford

      I, too, have informed the police about the active drug dealing taking place at known locations (mostly car parks at certain parks) almost 24 hours a day. However, they appear to have no interest in investigating such reports. I find it curious. Another thing I noted was the fact that there are several videos of TVP police (Slough and Maidenhead) engaging in unprofessional behaviour, breaking the law, breaking the police code, etc. online (Youtube). There is a serious rot in the police force here. The 2 officers expelled for ignoring reports of hare hounding (and this is just the doubtful official reason - i.e. why were they under surveillance in the first place) are just the tip of the iceberg. A Slough police officer has covered up a traffic offence, lied about military service, etc. My suspicion is that because Slough is multi-ethnic, it's seen as a soft touch and a place where TVP offloads its 'bad' cops. The good ones get sent to the royal boroughs, Ascot, Oxford, Henley, etc. The Slough lot just look for easy convictions. Why? Because they're not interested in law and order. They're up to their necks in something. Why are half of them being spied on by internal affairs? There's something not quite right about their triumphalism over this minor traffic case. What about the rapists and drug dealers? Saw a stolen motorbike used in a hit and run over a week ago at Red Cow roundabout. Police arrived. Nothing in news or on the police websites. So who's paying off the police?
