Superintendent of Police Kiran Bajracharya, District Chief of the Bhaktapur District Police Office in Nepal, has worked persistently to investigate crimes against women and children, including human trafficking.

SP Bajracharya has led efforts to identify trafficking victims at local hotels and restaurants; developed a training manual for junior officers on investigating crimes against women and children; and worked to ensure that human rights standards, police ethics, and gender equality are integrated into all police curricula and training programs. 

Between 2013 and 2015, SP Bajracharya served as Superintendent in the Central Investigation Bureau, where she focused on investigating organized transnational crime and initiated at least 14 human trafficking cases, an increase from just one case in prior years.  These cases resulted in numerous arrests, prosecutions, and convictions, including the arrest of 10 criminal gang members. 

In her current role as District Police Chief, SP Bajracharya continues to lead on human trafficking.  She gives orientation and awareness training to women working in local brick kilns on the risks of modern slavery; has set up checkpoints to inspect buses carrying individuals who may be trafficking victims; and has received the the Prabal Jansewa Shree’ medal for outstanding performance as a District Police Chief of Bhaktapur District by the President of Nepal.
