Two kindergarten teachers suspected of mistreating pupils have been detained by local police in the city of Wenling, East China's Zhejiang Province Thursday, according to the official Sina Weibo account of the city's public security bureau.
A photo posted online Wednesday by a Weibo user and parent named "Jiangjiang" shows a screaming, bawling boy being lifted off the ground by a smiling teacher pulling on his ears.
The photo, which was taken about one month ago, has triggered public outrage.
Police in Wenling said Yan Yanhong, the 21-year-old teacher, had been detained for provocative and disturbing behavior. The other teacher who took the photo, surnamed Tong, was given a 7-day administrative detention.
