Promising to expose how police reform process is "sabotaged" by the establishment, the country's first woman IPS officer Kiran Bedi is now planning to revise her biography by adding a new chapter which depicts her last days in policing.
The 58-year-old Magsaysay awardee, whose nearly 38-year-long association with police came to an end on a bitter note last week, will add a new chapter to "I Dare", a best-seller written by Parmesh Dangwal, on policing and state of police reforms in the country.
"Believe me, actually the police reform policies formulated by the Home Ministry are a part to sabotage it completely," an irate Bedi, whose voluntary retirement plea was accepted last week, claims.
She claims that it was only during her stint as the Director General of Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D), her last posting, that she understood the functioning and policy making of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
"My biography will have another chapter soon. It would be an eyewitness account of the policy making process and its poor implementation in the police force," Bedi told PTI.
Revising the book is a step towards achieving the goal of police reforms in the country, she said, adding she would now campaign for police reforms.
"I sacrificed my job for the best and police reforms is my mission now," she said.
