Actor Poonam Pandey, who recently got married to her longtime love Sam Bombay, has filed a police complaint in Goa against her husband Sam Bombay claiming that she has been molested, threatened and assaulted by him.
Now, after the complaint, she has broken her silence. The actress has made the decision not to go back to him.
Speaking to The Times of India, Poonam said, “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.”
Poonam says she will end her marriage with Sam. “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.”
As per reports in media, Sam was granted bail on Wednesday which was set at Rs 20,000. The couple are in Canacona village of South Goa for a film shoot. Sam has been asked to report to Canacona police station for four days starting Wednesday and also not to interfere with witnesses.
