Harbhajan, Jugraj face demotion scare

Chandigarh: Team India member Harbhajan Singh and hockey hero Jugraj Singh are among 340 sportspersons facing demotion in the Punjab Police following a court order on out-of-turn promotions in the force.

On a petition by some personnel in the general category, the Punjab and Haryana High Court, in July this year, gave directions that out-of-turn promotions beyond permissible limits under Punjab Police rules should be reverted.While Harbhajan is serving as a Deputy Superintendent of Police, Jugraj is an inspector. Other stars serving in Punjab Police include athlete Sunita Rani (DSP) and hockey forward Gagan Ajit Singh (DSP).
