Anyone knows whats happening to the leaves. I did not spray water on the leaves and doing bottom feeding. There are no visible mites too. No direct sunlight on the leaves too.

I'm no expert, but I would think that TMV would affect all leaves?

From your pic, it looks like mostly older leaves are affected. There is also some yellowing associated with the mottling?

I stress I am no expert.

If it is on the older leaves only, then it looks to me more like a nutrient deficiency. Have you been feeding them?

its puzzling isn't it?

Maybe some sort of biting insect/mite attacking from below the leaves? Thrips?
