'Lanketing' is a term that anyone who has studied at the Banaras Hindu University would know. With the rise in the number of such complaints, it would be interesting to take a look at what 'Lanketing' means. Today the term broadly means harassment. However when the word was coined it was not supposed to mean that. Those who have studied at this university several years back say at that time, 'Lanketing' meant going to Lanka Market to shop or to eat.
