Chandigarh: The Punjab government will relieve woman cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur of the DSP’s post for submitting a fake degree, but will not initiate any criminal proceedings against her, informed sources said on Tuesday. Government and police sources said no criminal proceedings for forgery and cheating were in the offing against the Indian T20 women cricket team captain. Enquiries by Punjab Police with the Chaudhary Charan Singh University in Meerut had revealed that Harmanpreet’s graduation degree was not genuine and in fact she was never enrolled as a varsity student. The state has now offered her a constable’s post on the basis of her Grade 12 pass certificate.
