The Governor, who is the chairman of the cell, appreciated the efforts of the authorities concerned in eradicating ragging and urged that the steps in this direction should continue, a Raj Bhavan release said.

The DGP informed that five cases had been registered this year, of which three cases took place in law colleges, and one each in Arts and Engineering colleges.
He said as on August 7 this year, 18 complaints had been received, "some of which could be bogus complaints."
