The family of Aman Kachroo, a medical student who died due to ragging, today said they were "not happy" with the quantum of punishment that has been given to the accused and will urge the government to appeal.

"We are not happy with the quantum of punishment that has been given to the accused. We feel that the quantum has diluted the message," Aman's father Rajendra Kachroo said in a statement.

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

Aman's father said one of the four accused has a "violent background".

"He started the entire episode and was the leader of the gang. He should have been given severest punishment. There should have been a distinction created between the ringleader and the rest. We will certainly consult the public prosecutor and request him to appeal against the quantum of punishment," the statement said.

Earlier in the day, when the accused were convicted, Aman's father had welcomed the decision.

"We welcome the verdict. It is a good day as it conveys the correct message that ragging and crime in any guise will not be tolerated any more. That the verdict has come in less than two years is an achievement in itself," he had said.
