SC terms ragging as a crime, makes FIR filing mandatory

The Supreme Court today directed all educational institutes to file a First Information Report (FIR) against all those indulged in ragging, thereby making it a criminal act.

New Delhi, May 16 : The Supreme Court today directed all educational institutes to file a First Information Report (FIR) against all those indulged in ragging, thereby making it a criminal act.

For the first time the apex court has taken such a serious view of the 'interaction between seniors and newcomers ' that is rampant in colleges across the country when the session begins. The order comes in the wake of growing number of ragging-related deaths in the country.

A two-member bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat and S H Kapadia, who heard the case also directed the Central and the State governments to form anti-ragging squad to keep an eye on such activities without any delay.

The order came after the apex court accepted the anti-ragging report submitted by former CBI Director R K Raghavan that has suggested a two-fold approach of punishment coupled with counseling to tackle the menace.

The bench today also asked both the Central and the State governments to put in practice all those proposals mentioned in the report prepared by the seven-member Committee that was constituted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development under the 2006 Supreme Court directive.
