India’s T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur on March 1 took charge as Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) with the Punjab police.
Harmanpreet Kaur, who grabbed the limelight after she helped India storm into the final of the Women’s World Cup with her unbeaten 171 against Australia, took charge in presence of state DGP Suresh Arora and Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh.
Delighted Kaur took to Twitter and wrote:
Excited about joining @PunjabPolice as DSP. Thank you Chief Minister @capt_amarinder Ji for pursuing my bond waiver with @RailMinIndia. Your support & encouragement will always keep me motivated to deliver my best. And thank you also @PiyushGoyal Ji for your help in the matter.

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, too, expressed pride in inducting the Indian women’s T20 captain to Punjab Police and wrote:
Proud to join DGP Suresh Arora in pinning the stars on the uniform of this young cricketer @ImHarmanpreet as she takes over as DSP in @PunjabPolice. This lady has done us proud and I’m confident she’ll continue to do so. My best wishes are with her. pic.twitter.com/0yuDOdr6j7

Kaur took over the charge as DSP after she received the waiver of her previous employment bond by the Indian Railways.
The state offered the DSP post to her in July last year following her outstanding performance in the Women’s World Cup 2017.
