Brent social worker convicted of shoving his wife is suspended for six months
He hid his conviction from his professional body
A SOCIAL worker who hid his conviction for pushing his wife during a heated argument has been suspended from his profession.
The General Social Care Council (GSCC) heard Kamal Chunilal was found guilty in Harrow Crown Court of battery in January, but hid it from the GSCC.
The father was employed as a manager of Brent Council’s HIV band sensory impairment team between January 1993 and November last year when he first came to the attention of the police in October 2008.
The hearing heard he was cautioned for attacking his wife and threatening to kill her in the presence of their child.
