Srinagar: A concert was organised here on Sundayas part of an ongoing campaign to create awareness against ragging and violence in colleges and universities across the country.
The concert was organised by Aman Satya Kachroo Trust, under Rajendra Kachroo whose son Aman committed suicide after being allegedly ragged by four of his seniors in a medical college in Himachal Pradesh in March 2009.
The trust, in partnership with the Ministry of HRD, is working for eradication of ragging in the country.
Speaking on the occasion, Kachroo said that ragging is a serious issue which cannot be shoved under the rug.
"Ragging is not a myth. It very much exists. It happens in both physical as well as mental form. There is a need to address this serious issue and it cannot be shoved under the rug," Kachroo said.
He said there is a need to sensitise parents as well as teachers about the issue and eradicate it completely.
Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra was the chief guest on the occasion.
