Poonam Pandey is one of the boldest actresses in the glamour world. After being one of the top nine contestants of Gladrags Manhunt and Megamodel Contest, Poonam had made her Bollywood debut with the film Nasha in 2013. Poonam had garnered a lot of attention for her bold pictures and controversial statements.
In July 2020, Poonam Pandey got engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Sam Bombay. And in September 2020, the duo had tied the knot. Within a few days of her wedding, Poonam had filed a complaint against her husband, Sam for molesting her while they were honeymooning in Goa. However, soon the couple reunited while Poonam stated, "Which marriage does not have its ups and downs."
Now, as per the reports of the Hindustan Times, the Mumbai Police arrested Sam Bombay for allegedly assaulting Poonam Pandey, who suffered serious head, eyes and face injuries. As per the police, the actress is admitted to the hospital after lodging the complaint. According to ANI, the Mumbai Police stated:
"The case has been registered against Sam Bombay under the sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC). The actress has suffered serious injuries on her head, eyes and face."
In 2020, when Sam was booked for assaulting Poonam during their honeymoon, the actress had opened up about her abusive relationship with Sam. In an interview with The Times of India, Poonam had revealed that Sam's possessiveness would turn into violence. Talking about the same, she had said:
"I have been in hospitals on several occasions through the course of our courtship. I put up with the abusive relationship because I believed that we loved each other. I always painted a rosy picture projecting us as a perfect couple. His anger stemmed from his possessiveness and insecurity. We got married hoping that things would get better. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out to be a wise decision. I am the perfect example of ‘love is blind’.”
Poonam was in a relationship with Sam for three years and the actress had claimed that it was always abusive but she had thought that marriage would change things for the better. But after being beaten ‘like an animal’, she had realised that nothing is going to change her abusive relationship.
On September 22, 2020, Poonam had filed a complaint at South Goa’s Canacona police station after which, Sam was arrested on the charges of molestation, assault and threatening. He was later granted bail by the Goa court with a surety of Rs. 20,000. He was also asked to report to the Canacona police station for four days and not to interfere with the witnesses.
Poonam and Sam were in a live-in relationship for two years!
