Beijing( CNN) A child abuse scandal that has rocked China made a distressing roll Tuesday, as police accused two mothers for fabricating fables of their children being doped and accosted at a Beijing kindergarten.

A police statement claimed that one father persuasion his child into saying they’d been given pills and that one mom, who’d told reporters her daughter was inspected by naked strange boys, had made up her story and was ready to clarify her words and apologize to the public.

The police did not say why the parents lied.
