    Hospitalize the raggers in the mental hospital and keep them there for an year.... They will get both treatment and punishment.

    There should be zero tolerance for ragging and any one caught ragging the freshers should be suspended.

    Put them in the jail and throw the key in the sea. These are the thugs who later become perennial protesters.
