Talking about Ryan International Murder case, Shatrughan Sinha said even those guilty of negligence should be brought to justice.

Demanding swift action in the murder of seven-year-old child in Gurugram’s Ryan International school, actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday tweeted that the responsibility of a child in school premises lies with the authorities. The child, Pradyumn Kumar, was killed by a schoolbus conductor after a failed attempt to sexually assault the class II student in a toilet.

In a series of tweets, Shatrughan wrote, “From the moment a child is delivered by a parent to anyone or any place under the purview of a school management, till the time the child is delivered back safely, he is 100% the responsibility of the school management & its owners. In this area, we have seen far too many lapses.Time has come to hold school managements squarely accountable & culpable for any lapse resulting in harm to a child. Do hope that apart from the murderer, everyone else who is guilty of ommission or commision in the shocking and tragic death of little #Pradyumn of Ryan International School, is brought to book and punished.”

The police arrested the conductor, Ashok Kumar, on Friday. Two top officials of the Ryan International School were arrested on Monday and the acting principal detained for questioning. The victim’s father moved the Supreme Court seeking a CBI probe on Monday.

Earlier, speaking about the harrowing case, Sanjay Dutt had said, “Everybody has to be very careful as far as their kids are concerned. It’s a frightening time for parents regarding the security of their children. As a father, I always tell my kids to do their activity and come back home, spend time with us, spend time at home, because at least that is safer.”
