India’s T20 cricket skipper caught in fake degree scandal


Web Desk: India’s women T20 cricket skipper, Harmanpreet Kaur has been divested of her deputy superintendent of Police (DSP) rank for submitting fake degree. But the Punjab government has not yet initiated any criminal proceedings against her, reported Hindustan Times.

According to the functionary, Punjab chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh doesn’t want any penal action against the sportswomen of international repute and ruin her career. He wants to9 give her a chance to complete her studies and later get promotion as DSP.

Any legal action against Indian skipper, who was conferred with the Arjuna award, last year,might complicate the matter.

29-year-old skipper had submitted a 2011 graduation degree to fulfill the eligibility criteria for becoming a DSP. She was appointed for the post of DSP on March 1.

The enquiries in the case revealed that Harmanpreet’s graduation degree was not genuine and she was never enrolled as a varsity student.
