Ragging is basically a social interaction between seniors and juniors, which may turn ugly at times. There is a sensitive line between healthy and inhuman ragging; if violated, it is termed criminal offence. Even obscene acts and songs are termed ragging.
If a student is caught harassing the junior, it may lead to cancellation of admission to debarring them from appearing in the exam. There are also IPC laws that can lead to imprisonment.A�There are regulations passed by the University Grants Commission in 2009 to curb this menace in the universities.
