HISTORY

CURE began in July 2001,[1] in Delhi, and has grown to a membership of
several hundreds, mostly students.

In February 2007, CURE reported to the Supreme Court appointed Raghavan
committee on ways to prevent ragging in Indian universities,[1]
highlighting the prevalence of physical and sexual abuse in the name of
ragging.[2] CURE also highlighted institutional unwillingness to
acknowledge ragging,[3] citing loss of reputation as their reason.

GOALS AND RESEARCH

CURE's stated goals are to create awareness about ragging and its
ill-effects, provide alternate means of interaction to Indian students and
censure those involved in ragging. Their research points to ragging as not
being "harmless fun",[4] but the cause of 25 suicides in 7 years[3]
