NEW DELHI: “Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education” (CURE), a non-profit organisation dedicated to elimination of ragging in educational institutions, has called for a nationwide observance of “No Ragging Day” on Thursday.

“The day is relevant to not only students but all of us who are concerned about dignity of life. This day coincides with the tragic death of Amit Sahai, an engineering student from Jalandhar, who committed suicide by jumping in front of a train on this day in 2005 as he was distressed and depressed due to severe physical and sexual abuse at the hands of his seniors,” it said.
