Two policemen involved in an alleged attack on an autistic man in Luton, have now been suspended.

In an open letter to residents, Chief Constable Colette Paul said new information received from the investigation team had meant the officers, who were on restricted duty, have now been suspended.

“Without judging the outcome of this investigation, this restriction has now been changed, and the officers involved have been suspended from all Police duties. Mr Ali’s family have been informed and I have reassured them that if at the end of the investigation wrong doing is identified I will deal with it. No inference of wrongdoing can be drawn until the conclusion of this independent enquiry supervised by the Independent Police Complaints Commission”, she said.

Ms Paul also met with the family of Mr Ali, of Whitby Road, Luton, to discuss the incident on february 20 this year.

Mr Ali’s family claim he was attacked while he put the bins out at the family home.
