accountability

राजा राष्ट्रकृतम् भुङ्क्ते राज्ञः पापं पुरोहितः।
भर्ता च स्त्रीकृतं पापं शिष्यपापं गुरुस्तथा॥
चाणक्य नीतिः
rājā rāṣṭrakṛtam bhuṅkte rājñaḥ pāpaṁ purohitaḥ|
bhartā ca strīkṛtaṁ pāpaṁ śiṣyapāpaṁ gurustathā||
cāṇakya nītiḥ

രാജാ രാഷ്ട്രകൃതം ഭുങ്ങ്തെ രാജ്ഞ: പാപം പുരോഹിത:
ഭര്‍ത്താ ച സ്ത്രീകൃതം പാപം ശിഷ്യപാപം ഗുരുസ്ഥതാ

The ruler has to bear the brunt of all the sins committed by his subjects. The Royal preceptor will have to suffer for the sins of the King. The husband is responsible for the wrong actions of  his wife and will have to atone for them and the sins of the disciples goes to the teacher.
Chanakyas logic is that the subjects tend to go wayward when the ruler is not effective.  It is the duty of the royal preceptor who is also the minister to aid and advise the king and lead him in the right path.  The lady (of the relevant period) was under the protection and care of the husband and if there are aberrations in her activities, the husaband was solely responsible for it.  The disciple learns all the lessons of his life from his teacher, and if the teacher imparts improper education the disciple will lose proper direction in life and the sin should definitely be credited to the account of the guru.
