A video that has recently surfaced on the internet shows DCP North Monika Bhardwaj pleading before an angry crowd of lawyers, requesting them not to protest, before being completely drowned by the approaching group.

The video is the  CCTV footage of the violence that broke out at Delhi's Tis Hazari Court, on November 2, between the lawyers and the police personnel, that allegedly escalated after a parking dispute between the two sides.

In the video, DCP Bhardwaj along with other police personnel can be seen asking a crowd of violent lawyers to hold back but the crowd refuses to back off, instead, the unarmed policemen, get swarmed by the agitators.

National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Rekha Sharma has strongly condemned the act while stating that suo moto action will be taken.

"Seeing a video where lawyers are manhandling and misbehaving with a woman police officer and behaving like goons. I strongly condemn it. I am going to take Suo Motu and will be writing to Bar Council and Commissioner of Police Delhi," Sharma tweeted.

As many as eight lawyers and about 20 policemen including Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) and two Station House Officers (SHOs) sustained injuries in the clash that took place on November 2.
