An 'obsessive and jealous' detective sergeant who worked in the City of London police's domestic violence unit throttled his lover and broke her ankle during a violent row, a court heard today.Ooops!
The court heard it was the latest in a series of rows between the couple, many caused by Ramdat's jealousy.I know there’s an old saying ‘poacher turned gamekeeper’, but really….
Basildon Crown Court heard Ramdat, who has been suspended since an investigation was launched, met Miss Lowe met on a detective training scheme in April 2007, where he was the instructor and she a student.Well, City of London Police needn’t worry too much about ‘attracting recruits from currently underrepresented groups’ to ensure their staff matches the local community.
They began an affair immediately and within a fortnight he left his wife and two daughters and moved into Miss Lowe's home in Chafford Hundred, Essex.
But they began rowing almost every day after she received a text message from her ex-lover, who also worked City of London police, asking if he could pick up his belongings, the court was told.
They’ve certainly got the ‘immoral, hot-tempered, emotionally unstable chav’ representation sewn up!
The jury was told the couple argued virtually every day and Ramdat even became jealous of Miss Lowe's professional relationship with a colleague, Detective Inspector Roy West, with whom she occasionally had breakfast.Like he did….
Furious at the friendship, he allegedly accused her of 'being chatted up by all the men with whom she worked. He said all the people wanted to do was sleep with her'.
