Two kindergarten teachers have been detained to assist with investigations into the abuse of four children at a nursery, Malaysia authorities said on Monday (August 13).

Two videos showing teachers hurting some of the children went viral recently.

The women, aged 21 and 40, were detained on Saturday (August 11) after the nursery’s manager filed a police report earlier that day, Melaka Tengah district police chief Afzanisar Ahmad told reporters.

“The incident was believed to have occurred on July 30. The case is investigated under Section 31(1) of the Child Act 2001,” he said.

One of the videos lasted around two minutes and showed a teacher at the nursery lifting a girl and slamming her body onto a boy she appeared to be punishing.

The other video lasted around 30 seconds and showed one of the teachers hitting a boy’s head twice, causing him to fall off his chair.
