A prospective police officer drew red lines on a Covid-19 test strip to get time off from work, a misconduct hearing has been told.

Ahmed Anwari told his training officer last December that he had to stay at home because of a positive lateral flow test result.

However, he was caught when asked to send a photo of the result as evidence, where “it became clear that the test had been manually altered with red lines drawn”.

The Lancashire Police Officer was then invited to take a coronavirus test at a Microsoft Teams meeting, where he falsely claimed the result had been positive again.

When confronted, Mr Anwari admitted to falsifying the results and lying about it, explaining he did it so he could stay at home under self-isolation rules at the time.

He resigned from the force a day later.

Chief Constable Chris Rowley, who chaired Monday’s hearing, found that former officer 2568 Anwari had breached standards of professional conduct and committed gross misconduct in the process.

“I think if Mr Anwari had still been a member of Lancashire Constabulary he would have been dismissed,” he said.
