Ra.One animator Charu Khandal operated successfully

Ra.One animator Charu Khandal who is in a critical condition battling for survival has been operated yesterday. The first surgery was carried on successfully at Kokilaben Ambani hospital. She met with an accident when a Honda City driver heavily drunk rammed into an auto rickshaw in which Charu, her sister and her friend were traveling.

The surgery was conducted for removing the blockage in her neck. Earlier, doctors couldn't operate on her as her spine was swollen. The accident happened on Sunday afternoon around 1pm when she was returning home with her sister Ritu and friend Vikrant Goyal.

28 year old Charu suffered multiple fractures in her leg and spine and also had some injury on her head. The accident took place near Sriji restaurant.

Ritu and Goyal also received severe injuries in the accident. The trio was immediately rushed to a nearby private hospital where Charu is battling for life and two others are undergoing treatment.

Manoj Gautam, who was behind the wheels was arrested on Sunday for rash and negligent driving but was released on bail.

Shahrukh Khan on landing in India from London visited Charu in hospital.
