Further investigation into the matter is currently underway.
This is not the first time that the actress has reported assault against her husband. Sam was previously arrested for assault in Goa, just days after their wedding last year. Pandey had filed a police complaint claiming that her husband had molested her and threatened her with dire consequences after assaulting her. The incident happened in Canacona village in south Goa where the couple was reportedly preparing for a film shoot.
Sam Bombay was booked under Sections 353 (causing hurt), 353 (insult) 506 (criminal intimidation) and 354 (outraging modesty) of the Indian Penal Code.
The actress filed a complaint of domestic violence against him. Soon after, Poonam reconciled with Sam and said, “which marriage does not have its ups and downs.”
Poonam and Sam reportedly lived together for about two years before tying the knot in a low-key ceremony in their Bandra home on September 1. Sharing a picture from their wedding, she wrote on Instagram, “Here’s looking forward to seven lifetimes with you.”
