Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy's son-in-law, Rishi Sunak, is among the three Indians to have found place in British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's new cabinet team. The two other Indians to get inducted in the new cabinet are Alok Sharma and Priti Patel.

Sunak, who has been appointed as the chief secretary to the Treasury, was elected as the member of Parliament from Richmond (Yorks) in 2015. Earlier, he held the post of a junior minister in the department of local government. He completed his education from Oxford and Stanford universities.

Priti Patel, who on Wednesday took charge as Britain's first Indian-origin Home Secretary in the newly-unveiled Boris Johnson Cabinet, is an ardent Brexiteer and was among the most vocal critics of Theresa May's Brexit strategy. She was a prominent member of the Back Boris campaign for the Conservative Party leadership and was widely tipped for the plum post in his frontline team.

Junior minister Alok Sharma has been promoted to the rank of international development minister. The appointments give a 'new look' to an otherwise conservative government.
