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. Currently, Sri Lanka is said to be the worst affected country in the world.
