Sometimes, it is possible that in the case of a ragging complaint, a student feels aggrieved or upset by the decision given by the Anti-Ragging Committee. In such a case, you can appeal against the decision given. For example, Ram punched Shyam because Shyam, being a junior, did not agree to perform a dance. Shyam reported this incident to the Anti-Ragging Committee. The Committee decided to suspend Ram from the college for a month, and Ram felt aggrieved by it. In such a case, Ram can appeal against the decision of the Anti Ragging Committee.
