Popular women’s cricket captain of T20 fame has been stripped of her DSP rank by the Punjab police as her graduation certificate has been found to be a fake. According to a report in the Times of India the rank was withdrawn by the Punjab government after it was confirmed that her graduation degree was fake.
According to the report, the government has conveyed to Harmanpreet that as her educational qualification was of class12, she can be retained in the Punjab police only as a constable. It is understood that no legal action is being taken against her considering her international reputation.
The cricketer was not available for comment on the issue. However her manager reacting to the news said, ’This is the same degree she had submitted to the Railways. How can it suddenly become fake and forged?’ Harmanpreet had earlier been employed by the Railways.
