The officer has been identified as Monika Bhardwaj, the DCP of North Delhi.

As can be seen in the video, while the vehicles are consumed by the fire in the background, a pleading woman IPS officer with her folded handed implores agitated mob of lawyers to back off. However, not heeding to her prayers, they violently charge towards her and other police officers and allegedly attack her by grabbing her by her collar.
