New Delhi:

In a shocking news, Bollywood actor Jeetu Verma has been reportedly attacked by miscreants while travelling from Mount Abu to Jaipur. Jeetu, who has done side roles in popular films like Bodyguard, Soldier and others, was attacked in Chittorgarh by a group of local men started pelting stones at his car.

The media reports suggest that the actor has hurt his one eye in the attack and might lose sight. 

"There is a 40-km patch of forest area near Chittorgarh, which is en route. It was broad daylight and Jeetu was sitting next to the driver in the front seat. Suddenly, some locals started pelting their car. The driver picked up speed but the stones kept coming. One hit the windshield and it cracked. Jeetu's eye was hit and bleeding profusely even as the driver raced away," Manohar Verma, who is an action director, told Mumbai Mirror.

Jeetu was rushed to Udaipur airport and flown to Mumbai immediately where he was hospitalised. Suniel Shetty helped the family and made all arrangements for Jeetu after the attack.

Two days after the incident, Jeetu was operated upon. The doctor in charge, S Natarajan, confirmed to Mumbai Mirror that he had a fractured eyebrow, which required 10 stitches, and had lost retinal function in one eye.

This is around the same place where Sanjay Leela Bhansali was attacked on the sets of Padmavati. But with this incident, an actor might even lose vision in his eyes. And it's becoming a serious problem to deal with now.
