Suresh Sankhyan, the principal of Rajendra Prasad Medical College in Kangra district, was criticized for his failure to rein in the ragging in his college and was forced to accept compulsory retirement over the incident which led to Kachru's death.

On March 8 2009, Aman Kachru was found dead after being allegedly ragged by four seniors, jay Verma, Naveen Verma, Abhinav Verma and Mukul Sharma. More than 10 pervious instances of ragging had taken place in the college but Sankhyan failed to punish the offenders, earning the ire of the bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice Asok Kumar Ganguly.

Himachal's Principal Secretary (Health) P.C. Dhiman confirmed the move saying, "Sankhyan has been sent on compulsory retirement before his actual superannuation. He was accused of dereliction of duty, including failure to check ragging that led to Kachru's death."
