    This case, we have got chance to set a precedence. The prin l, the security staff of the school and admin staff responsible for ensuring the safety and keeping guidelines should be jailed for negligence. Add to this, jail the government staff responsible to ensure the guidelines were followed along with Ryan group chairman as he is ultimate franchise owner of the group. If he benefits from profits then blame also stops at his door only. Even if these all people are jailed for 1 year , so many such unfortunate future instances will not happen
