The Scotland Yard has opened an investigation into the conduct of six officers accused of waterboarding drug suspects after arresting them last year.
The police have confirmed that the officers face "serious allegations" in connection with arrests of five suspects in the north London borough of Enfield on November 4, 2008.
London's police force did not provide details of the misconduct. "Whilst the investigation is on-going it is not appropriate to make assumptions," it said in a statement.
Media outlets, however, have reported that in addition to waterboarding, the officers are alleged to have repeatedly ducked the suspects' heads in buckets of water.
Furthermore, the officers are accused of fabricating evidence and of stealing the property of a number of suspects during a drugs-related investigation, which did not result in a trial.
