Islam, 30, denied misconduct in a public office between 15 November and 4 December 2012 by kissing and sexually touching the same woman.
Both men were cleared of all charges by a jury at Luton crown court on Tuesday.

Her family arrived in the country in 2000 and in 2006 they were given leave to remain in the UK.

But in 2010 the woman, who by then was 21, was convicted of an offence for which she was sent to prison.
While behind bars, the court was told the woman was served with a notice that she was to be deported.
At the end of her sentence, was transferred from the prison to Yarl’s Wood in the summer of 2012 ‘to await removal from the UK.’
