The actor was travelling from Mount Abu to Jaipur. He has been admitting to an eye hospital in Wadala. His brother Manohar Verma told Mumbai Mirror that the incident took place in broad daylight and that Verma was sitting in the seat next to the driver. The driver drove faster after locals began throwing stones, but the pelting did not stop.

The police have assessed the vehicle and recovered the stones that were lodged in it. "But there needs to be more security. When such occurrences are happening in the region on a daily basis, it is important that stringent measures be taken immediately," Manohar added.

Kumar is being operated upon by Dr S Natrajan who has said that he suffered an eye brow fracture and that he has lost retinal function in his right eye. It is unlikely that he will gain sight in this eye.

Jeetu Verma is best remembered for his role in Bobby Deol-starrer Soldier, which was released in 1998.
