The Women, Family and Community Development Ministry is in the process of shutting down the unregistered nursery where a four-year-old girl was raped by a 12-year-old boy.

Its minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail told reporters on Wednesday that the nursery was caring for eight children and Welfare Department officers are now seeing how to care for the best interest of the other children as well as the victim.

She added that the incident highlighted the need for the ministry to be stricter in monitoring unregistered nurseries across the country.
