Shaikh was captured beating nine-month-old Ritisha Sinha during nap time at the day care centre in western India.
The horrifying attack took place on the infant's first day at the nursery, in the city of Kharghar, in Maharashtra State.
The infant's parents, Dad Rajat, 31, and her mum Ruchita, 29, said they discovered a lot of bruises after her mum picked her up from daycare.
Ritisha's mother, Ruchita, noticed a bruise on the infant's face when she picked her up.
"Ritisha was fast asleep but there was a bruise under her eye. When my wife asked about it, the centre owner said she had hit herself while playing."Initially, we thought that Ritisha may have been stressed because it was her first day, and we believed the caretaker. But at home, she was crying continuously and refused to eat anything."The couple discovered more bruises on their daughter's back and behind her ear.
The parents said Rishita also developed a fever and started vomiting. They got worried and took her to a doctor the next day.
A hospital CT scan later revealed that she had suffered a small fracture at the back of her skull, which had led to internal bleeding.
"It was inhuman. The carer was manhandling my daughter - hitting her with toys and throwing her on the mat. "We just saw what she did to my baby, who knows how she is treating the other kids at the centre."The owner of the daycare was arrested after the CCTV recording was viewed and the daycare worker was arrested as well.
The owner got released on bail while the carer remained in custody facing charges of child abuse and endangerment.
