The Deputy Superintendent of Police rank, accorded to Indian women’s cricket team twenty 20 skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, has reportedly been withdrawn by the Punjab government over the controversy over her graduation degree. According to The Times of India, the decision was taken by the state government after a probe confirmed that her degree was fake.
Reacting to the report, Harmanpreet Kaur’s manager said that no official communication had been received by the cricket. He said, “We have not received any official letter from Punjab police regarding the termination of her job. This is the same degree which she submitted in the Railways. How it can be fake and forged?”
This comes days after the cricketer snubbed mediapersons when the controversy about her degree came to the fore. According to a report in news agency PTI, she had made mediapersons wait for over an hour outside her vanity van during an event in Mohali.
