A Muslim police officer is taking legal action against the Metropolitan force following his removal from a top protection squad.
Amjad Farooq, 39, was a member of Diplomatic Protection Group SO16, which guards dignitaries such as Tony Blair.
PC Farooq had been working for the DPG for six weeks when he was told he had failed his security checks.
His solicitor, Lawrence Davies, told the Independent: "Muslims are labelled guilty by association."
The newspaper also says PC Farooq denies any such links or inappropriate behaviour. [Link]
