A police sergeant who claims to have been the first female ethnic minority officer in Surrey was accused of allegedly attacking her husband’s lover with a shoe after tracking the couple down.

Sergeant Prabh Sohi, 38, who remains an officer with Surrey Police, was accused of confronting the pair at a medical centre in Pinner, north-west London, and punching the woman before hitting her with her own shoe.

She now faces an internal police inquiry after the case against her was dropped when the alleged victim failed to appear at a court hearing.

Sergeant Sohi has always denied the charge of assaulting Rouksana Haji in April last year.

“She has not been suspended and the matter is the subject of an ongoing internal investigation.”

Ms Haji, who has made two withdrawal statements since that date, failed to appear at Willesden magistrates’ court on Tuesday and the Crown Prosecution Service offered no evidence.

A CPS application to adjourn the trial to another date was refused.

Sgt Sohi has received several commendations during her 13-year career.

“She hit me in the face and my shoe fell off.”

Ms Maya Arputham, prosecuting, alleged in court that Sgt Sohi went with her father and five-month-old child to the car park where she confronted her husband and Ms Haji.

Ms Haji had been sitting in a car but got out. “She hit me in the face and my shoe fell off,” Ms Haji told police.

“She picked it up and hit me in the face three or four times, calling me a ‘dirty slag’.”

Photographs of Ms Haji’s injuries were shown to the magistrates and were said to include marks and bruises to her back.

It is understood that Sgt Sohi’s husband is still with Ms Haji.

A spokesman for Surrey Police said: “Prabhjoat Sohi appeared at Willesden magistrates’ court where the common assault case against her following an incident in Pinner was dismissed by the court with no evidence offered.

“She has not been suspended and the matter is the subject of an ongoing internal investigation.”
