Jeetu Verma struggles for eyesight after getting severely injured by highway robbers
Bollywood’s famous villain, Jeetu Verma, who was seen in movies like ‘Soldier’, ‘No Problem’, ‘Bol Bachchan‘ and ‘Son of Sardaar‘ amongst others, is currently struggling for his eyesight at Aditya Jyot Eye Hospital.
The actor got severely injured after getting attacked by a gang of robbers on the Highway during a visit to Mount Abu with wife Kusum Verma. Both Jeetu and Kusum went to take part in the summer festival held at Mount Abu and soon after attending it, they were on their way to Chittoor when the incident took place. (Also Read: Did you know?

Jeetu’s wife revealed that the actor is seriously injured and is hospitalised. Spilling more details on the horrible attack, Kusum said, “We had left from Abu at 9.30 pm in the night; we were on the Road, it was around 10.30 pm and we had stopped by the Dilwara village. And suddenly our car was pelted with stones. It was after few seconds we learned that it was tribals who were bombarding us with huge rocks! The stones were rolling from the cliff and the driver was unable to save us. It was a big rock that broke the glass and directly hit Jeetu in the eye. I had heard about the attacks and how the tribals, who are highway robbers, but to experience a life threatening event was horrifying.”
The actor was then taken to Global Hospital in Mount Abu and when the couple approached the police to file a FIR, the cops did not respond. “The cop themselves were afraid to visit that zone. When we asked them to file the FIR, they laid an unusual demand; asking us to travel all the way back to the unsafe location to explain what really happened. It wasn’t possible for us to travel all the way back and risk our lives again. As a result, no action was taken against the criminals. But we will file the complaint here once my husband recovers” she added.
Jeetu with wife came to Mumbai on the 29th and was then immediately rushed to the Aditya Jyot Hospital in Wadala. The actor’s eye is severely injured with 10 stitches near his eyebrows. “He is going to be in the hospital for few more days and the second operation will take place tomorrow,” Kusum revealed.
We hope for his speedy recovery.
