Disgraced: Avi Maharaj, 44, has been jailed for 12 months after using a grieving family’s wife to download pornography

A shamed police officer who downloaded pornography on a grieving family’s television after their son’s suicide was kicked out of the force yesterday.

PC Avi Maharaj, 44, was at Graham and Allison Miller’s home in Earlsfield, south-west London after the death of their son Harry, 14, in February last year.

As he waited for an undertaker, he used the family’s Virgin account to buy porn costing £25.96.

Southwark Crown Court heard that Maharaj originally arrived with other colleagues at 10.16pm but was left alone half an hour later.

He then lied to try and cover his tracks, claiming that the house had been broken into by an intruder who had accessed the TV. He also logged incorrect time codes to make it appear that he left the premises earlier than he did.

Jailing Maharaj for 12 months at Southwark Crown Court last week after he admitted fraud by false representation Judge Deborah Taylor told the officer: ‘While his grieving parents were being consoled elsewhere, you had the responsibility of guarding the house late at night until the arrival of the undertaker to remove the body.

Judge Deborah Taylor said it was ‘impossible to overstate’ how Maharaj’s actions had added to the Miller family 

‘Instead of performing that duty with respect and professionalism, you took it upon yourself to guess the password to the household Virgin Media account, to act as if you were the account holder, and used it to purchase, download and view four pornography films.

‘The amount involved doesn’t by any means reflect the seriousness of this offence.

‘Whilst the sum involved is small, the impact of your actions is high the family were vulnerable they were traumatised by loss of their son and they trusted you to watch their house.

‘Your actions exacerbated their grief and suffering.’

‘It really is impossible to overstate the affront of your behaviour that night in the face where a tragic death of a young boy had occurred.

‘All right thinking people would be appalled gross lack of decency and respect in indulging yourself at all in those circumstances, at all let alone deviously and at the expense of the bereaved parents.

‘Your behaviour is in stark contrast to the high standards shown every day by officers over the country. It frankly beggars belief.’

He was yesterday dismissed from the force following a Met Police misconduct hearing.
