Shocking footage shows a nanny abusing a helpless toddler after the child's parents set up a secret camera.
In the distressing clip, the woman can be seen caning the 18-month-old girl across the bottom and legs.
The girl's family also claim she was bitten in the face, but this is not shown happening in the video.
Her parents reportedly became anxious after spotting marks on her body and decided to film the nanny at their home in Kapurthala in the northern Indian state of Punjab.
They also said they noticed the toddler's behaviour changing.
