Ragging is a practice similar to hazing in educational institutions. The word is mainly used in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Ragging involves existing students baiting or bullying new students. This phenomenon is similar to fraternities and sororities in North America. It often takes a malignant form wherein the newcomers may be subjected to psychological or physical torture.[1][2] Currently, Sri Lanka is said to be the worst affected country in the world.[3][4]
