Here comes a disturbing news from Bollywood. Bollywood actor Jeetu Verma, who was seen in side roles in movies like ‘Bodyguard’, ‘Soldier’ etc was brutally attacked in Chittorgarh by a group of local men. Jeetu sustained injury in eyes and he might lose his eye sight. Jeetu was attacked when he was on his way from Mount Abu to Jaipur. The locals pelted stones at his car.

"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 Verma was immediately rushed to Udaipur airport and from there he was flown to Mumbai for treatment. He was hospitalized. After diagnosis, the doctors revealed that Jeetu suffered a 'fractured eyebrow, required 10 stitches and has lost retinal function'.

Jeetu’s wife Kusum revealed actor Suniel Shetty helped them in their difficult time. "Sunielji arranged for Jeetu to be transported and admitted to this hospital the moment he landed in Mumbai. Now, we hope that he recovers soon and other travellers don't suffer such horrors in the future," she told Mumbai Mirror.
