Chandigarh: To curb the menace of ragging in technical educational institutes in the state, the Punjab government on Wednesday set up an anti-ragging cell.

The minister said anti-ragging committees had already been set up in all technical educational institutions. He said the members of the committees included teachers and parents of students.
Any victim could approach an anti-ragging committee in the concerned institution or the anti-ragging cell at the Director Technical Education in Chandigarh, the minister said.

Strict action would be taken against institutes which failed to follow the instructions, the minister said.
