Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Friday urged the Railways to relieve international woman cricketer Harmanpreet Kaur so that she could join the Punjab Police as an officer. "I have already written to the Railways twice and hope that she would be relieved soon so that she could join Punjab Police as a DSP at the earliest," Amarinder said on the sidelines of a function.

Amarinder's statement came in reference to media reports that the Indian Railways had asked Harmanpreet to deposit Rs 27 lakh in lieu of the 5-year service bond that she had signed with them earlier. The chief minister offered the post of a deputy superintendent of police (DSP) to Kaur, who hails from Moga district of Punjab. She starred for the Indian team as it reached the final of the Women's World Cup.
