Police have started investigating cases of needle hole marks on the children at a Beijing kindergarten.
Furious parents were waiting outside the RYB Education kindergarten, but were stopped by security from entering, the Beijing News reported on Thursday, adding that the parents demanded that they see the head of the school and view surveillance video.
"My child is only three-and-a-half years, and I found needle hole marks on his thighs and buttocks. I am trembling with anger now," a parent told the Beijing News.
Aside from the needle hole marks, some parents said their children refused to go to kindergarten because the teachers were feeding them pills. "I ate it…the teacher fed us…to sleep…other children also took them everyday…," a child said in a video the parent provided to the Beijing News.
Some netizens said the children were allegedly being molested, and that their classmates were told to watch.
The Beijing News said police invited the parents to the police station to discuss their investigation.
