Just two weeks ago, the couple posted on Instagram to announce their marriage that was held in a private ceremony. Poonam Panday got married to Sam Bombay. The couple dated for 2 years before teing the knot on September 10.
The couple was on their honeymoon in Goa when she filed a complaint against her husband saying that Sam used to beat her like “an animal”. She further said that her relationship with Sam was always violent and she hoped that after marrying him things would change for good. She even said that Sam would get very possessive about her and would beat her. She has decided that she will not go back to him.
In an interview with Times of India, Poonam revealed the events that led to Sam’s arrest, “Sam and I had an argument, which escalated, and he began hitting me. He choked me and I thought I was going to die. He punched me in my face, pulled me by my hair and banged my head against the corner of the bed. He knelt on my body, pinned me down and assaulted me. Somehow, I managed to break free and bolted out of the room. The hotel staff called the cops, who took him away. I filed a complaint against him,” She further added, “This time, I don’t plan to go back to him. I don’t think it’s a smart idea to return to a person, who has beaten you up like an animal, without even thinking of the consequence. In a bid to save our relationship, I have suffered a lot. I prefer being single than in an abusive relationship. I have decided to end our marriage. It’s about time I moved on.”
Sam was arrested on the charges of molestation and assault. He was arrested on Tuesday and got got a bail on Wednesday which was set at Rs 20, 000. Sam has been directed by the court to report at the Canacona police station in South Goa for four days. Court ordered him to cooperate with the investigation.
