Four get jail in Kachroo ragging case

 Four medical students were on Thursday sentenced to four years in jail by a fast track court after being held guilty of culpable homicide not amounting to murder for ragging to death their junior Aman Kachroo in Himachal Pradesh last year.

Additional district and sessions judge Purinder Vaidya did not entertain the prosecution plea for convicting the four students of murder under Section 302 of the IPC for which the punishment is life term or death. The judgment came 20 months after the incident which had triggered an uproar and led the state government to come out with a legislation making ragging a cognisable, non-bailable offence.
