KAJANG: Four women who were detained for allegedly abusing three children at a nursery in Bangi have been remanded for two days.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Othman Nanyan confirmed on Saturday that the four were remanded until Sunday.
The allegations surfaced after photograph of three children lying on the ground, tied up with pieces of white cloth went viral on social media.
One of the suspects, a 46-year-old nursery manager, was picked up at an apartment in Bandar Baru Bangi on Friday.
Police have recorded statements from several persons of interest in the case and the victims have been sent to a hospital for check-up.
The Star visited the nursery on Friday and found its gates chained. No one was allowed into the premises.
Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim was quoted by Bernama as saying that the ministry had sent an officer to investigate the matter.
