Khushwant is also active in the Sikh social activity circle, especially as a volunteer at Sikh Naujawan Sabha Malaysia, a Kuala Lumpur based national Sikh youth organisation.
Harjinder heads the banking fraud unit at PDRM’s Commercial Crime Investigations Department. She joined the police force in 1977 with the rank of inspector and has more than 35 years of policing experience.
She has frequently been quoted by the local media on banking fraud matters.
