Ex-Scottish policewoman jailed after chasing lover’s car as she ended the affair

A former police officer who attached a tracking device to his former lover’s car when she broke up their extramarital affair was jailed for 12 months yesterday.

Abdul Salam sought revenge after feeling rejected when Razia Azhar ended the illegal sexual trysts – which began a decade after their first relationship ended in 2008.

Salam, 37, chased his ex-lover for months before she became suspicious and set up a honey trap to catch and confront him.

Salam was jailed for a year and made the subject of a life-long no-harassment warrant yesterday after Razia told Dundee Sheriff’s Court that she lived in fear of him.

Sheriff Lorna Drummond said: “You pleaded guilty to the complainant where you followed her for two or three months, went to her children’s school and gym and texted her husband in who pretended to be having an affair and placed a tracking device on her car.

“She said you were someone who would stop at nothing. All of their independence and confidence have been taken away and destroyed. She feels trapped and is constantly afraid. According to the reports, your angry, obsessive, unrepentant thoughts about the complainant indicate an increased level of concern about the risk to her. “

The court was told that the married father of four had devised an elaborate ruse to convince Razia’s husband that she had betrayed him.

The former special police officer posed as Samantha and reported Razia’s movements to her husband in an attempt to convince him that his wife was having an affair.

But the couple set up a stab operation to take out Salam, and that led to an angry confrontation with police and the discovery of the secret tracking device.

Chief Financial Officer Stewart Duncan told the court, “Mobeen Azhar got out of the car and confronted the defendants, and they started pushing each other.”
