Civil Claim Officers


Thank you for this morning's email as attached: Letter to Claimant - 10.05.2022 concerning my 5 May email as attached toKentPolice(ClaimAmount)5May2022.docx.


I was waiting to see if I would receive a communication either from Medway County Court or the Queens Bench Judgs Listing office to see if any Directions will be issued in this matter hut Id not receive a response today. This would explain the delay in replying to your email.


I am keen to do whatever is required of me and my wife is also of that opinion for as you must be aware she had written two letters to Kent Police concerning the circumstances of my interrogation on 15 September 2021 for harassment and the arrest of 24 November 2021 for allegedly Stalking Katrina Sale of the Conservative and Unionist Party. To this was recently added a third malicious communication that I am supposed to have sent BP.I deny any wrongdoing personally and have consistently protested that these emails were sent by trolls disrupting my work for the Conservative and Libertarian Party of the United Kingdom and my part-time employment with Tesco, Sainsburys and BP. The officers in charge of the investigation PCNichiolls, WC Field and PC Evans have seemingly rejected my protestations so that my complaint against the Chief Constable of Kent Police stands unchanged since as the person in charge of the Police Force it was his duty to ensure that these officers acted diligently. In my submssions to the Professional Standards Department I had submitted that thee first two of these officers criminally protected the reputation of the Judiciary in various courts and this needs investigation by the Police.The events of the past three weeks bear this out.As you must be aware judicial authorities and other court officials are not above the law in our Constitution so they should be identified by Kent Police and a report than submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service.


My wife is saying now that all she wishes is for her desktop computer to be returned to her because it had a lot of her photographs saved on it.


If you require any further information on this matter please refer to the Claim Foirm that I have attached:n1-engKentPolice(update)May2022.pdf..


Yours sincerely

Your Ref:

Dear Mr Panigrahi,

Re: Your Claim

We write in reference to your email dated 10th May 2022.

You are requesting that you wife’s desktop computer be returned. This claim is strongly refuted

and denied in full. The officer seized your wife’s computer in accordance with s19 Police and

Criminal Evidence Act 1984.

Subsection 2 states:

(2) The constable may seize anything which is on the premises if he has reasonable grounds for

believing:

(a) that it has been obtained in consequence of the commission of an offence; and

(b) that it is necessary to seize it in order to prevent it being concealed, lost, damaged, altered, or

destroyed.

Furthermore, the desktop was seized as evidence in relation to the suspected offence as

highlighted under subsection 3:

(3) The constable may seize anything which is on the premises if he has reasonable grounds for

believing:

(a) that it is evidence in relation to an offence which he is investigating or any other offence; and

(b) that it is necessary to seize it in order to prevent the evidence being concealed, lost, altered, or

destroyed.

The officers of Kent Police lawfully seized your wife’s desktop computer in order to obtain evidence

from an electronic device. Such seizure is further supported under s19(4) of the Police and

Criminal Evidence Act 1984. Moreover, the officers have reason to believe the desktop is valuable

to the expeditious investigation that is currently being conducted.

We shall note, further extensions of powers are provided to the officers when seizing electronic

devices under s20 Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. Thereby the officers lawfully and

procedurally seized the desktop computer.

\\kisprod.netr.ecis.police.uk\Groups\Legal Services\2022\444\Letter to Mr Panigrahi 24.05.2022.docx

Kent Police can retain the property under s22 Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. Therefore,

the property is to be retained only for ‘as long as necessary in all the circumstances.’ The property

was seized for the purpose of the criminal investigation. Whilst investigations are ongoing, the

officers can lawfully retain the property for examination and investigation in connection with the

alleged offence.

The Chief Constable’s position remains that Kent Police officers have lawfully seized and retained

the desktop computer. Thereby the computer will be held for as long as necessary whilst the

investigations are being conducted.

We trust that we have dealt with all matters raised in your letter of claim and confirm that the Head of Legal Services is able to receive the service of any issued claim on behalf of the Chief Constable of Kent

Police.

Yours faithfully,

Legal Services

Legal Services Department
