FEAR DOESN’T FEATURE IN HER DICTIONARY
DCP PCR, Monika Bhardwaj has taken up several complicated cases, and each one has left her with unforgettable lessons. “With every case, I have emerged stronger. It’s about having unflinching faith in oneself and one’s values,” she says. Bhardwaj made headlines for leading a police team that very quickly and efficiently apprehended two juveniles who had kidnapped a threeyear-old girl from a Ramleela function in Nihal Vihar and raped her. Bhardwaj was earlier posted in Pondicherry. The gritty officer took an MLA head on and arrested some men who had allegedly gang-raped a 21-year-old woman. The MLA had allegedly doubted the rape survivor’s character, and has gone to the extent of labelling her a sex worker.
