Gujarat: An eight-month-old child in Gujarat is hospitalized after the Nanny thrashed the baby. The heinous acts of the lady were recorded in the CCTV installed in the house. The baby has suffered a brain haemorrhage as stated by the doctors at the private hospital.

Identified as Komal Tandelkar, the babysitter tried to kill the baby, police said. An FIR has been registered against the woman based on the footage extracted from the CCTV. The video features the lady thrashing the baby for one and a half minute before twisting his ears and repeatedly throwing him against the bed.

According to Police officer ZR Desai, it appears to be an attempt to murder. “Yesterday, when Patel was away at work, he received a call from his mother, who informed him that one of the babies was crying and fainting. The child was immediately taken to a hospital. Later, when the family members checked the CCTV footage, they found the babysitter thrashing the child, twisting his ear and throwing him against the bed,” Mr Desai told reporters. The lady is detained and will be arrested after being tested for COVID.

The baby- is a twin of Mitesh Patel, who had recently installed a CCTV camera in his house after neighbours complained of hearing cries of the babies when the couple were at work.  The babysitter was employed four months ago after the couple had welcomed their twins.
