Julian Agalliu was not charged with drug offences, but she was fired from her role at the Metropolitan Police for breaching the force’s standards of professional behaviour. She was dismissed in November following a police disciplinary panel which said it was “inconceivable” that she did not know of her husband’s drug dealing business.

Officers also found cannabis plants being cultivated at the property, the report said.
Rasvinder Agalliu, who has been a police officer for nearly two decades, wore designer clothes and drove a £70,000 Audi, The Mirror reported. She lived in a £5,000-a-month rental property with her husband, despite drawing a police officer’s salary, the report said.
