Police in Ho Chi Minh City have placed a kindergarten teacher under investigation for allegedly torturing a four-year-old boy in September, local news website Vietnamnet reported Thursday.
Initial information is that on September 17, Tran Thi Xuan Nu, a teacher of Hoa Lan Nursery in Tan Phu District, put Le Quang Vinh in the school's food elevator because he refused to eat.
She then closed the door and put it into operation to scare him.
Vinh ended up having multiple injuries, including serious ones, in his head, eyes, limbs and stomach, the news source said.
Vinh's mother Du Thi Thanh Thuy asked the police to investigate the case.
Nu has been asked to go on leave and the nursery has been temporarily closed from November 1 to 21.
