When fanaticism gets to madness, accidents are prone to happen. One such incident took place yesterday at Shruthi Hassan's residence yesterday morning when she was attacked by a stranger and strangled. The valiant actress fought back the unidentified male and threw him off the house, also managing to injure him a bit. It is said that a crazy fan of the actress had stood at the door of her residence, and when she answered the bell, he pounded on her and strangled her.
Shruthi fought his tight clutches and pushed him away, slamming the door on his hand. This is believed to have caused the attacker a minor injury, as his hand got jammed in the door. However, he escaped quickly. Meanwhile, we can breathe easy as Shruthi is safe and brave. She confirmed this on her micro blog last night, with the post "I'm doing fine and thank you for the concern."
It seems the stranger had been stalking the actress for a long time. Apparently from the time she was shooting for film 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya'. Currently Shruti said to be living at her friend's house for safety measures.
