Model and actor Poonam Pandey‘s husband Sam Bombay (Sam Ahmed) has been arrested by the Mumbai Police after Poonam accused him of physical assault. Pandey’s husband was arrested on Monday in Mumbai after the actress lodged a complaint against him at the Bandra Police Station, ANI reported. Poonam has been admitted to a hospital in the city, with reports suggesting she has received injuries on her face and hand.
Poonam Pandey’s husband, Sam Bombay or Sam Ahmed Bombay, who is a director, producer and editor, was arrested by the Mumbai police after the actress accused him of physical assault. According to reports, Poonam has suffered head, eye and face injuries and is currently admitted to a hospital.
“Actress Poonam Pandey’s husband, Sam Bombay, was arrested yesterday in Mumbai after the actress complained that he assaulted her. Poonam Pandey was admitted to a hospital,” said the Mumbai police.
This is not the first time Poonam Pandey has filed a complaint against Sam Bombay. Back in 2020, Poonam complained against Sam for assaulting, molesting and threatening her and said that she had decided to end her marriage with him. Sam was then arrested in Goa.
Poonam said that her relationship “has always been abusive”, and that it isn’t a good idea to continue with a person who has “beaten” her up “like an animal”.
Of the incident that forced her to take action against Sam Bombay, Poonam said, “Our argument 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,” she added.
On July 27, 2020, Poonam had taken to her social media platforms to announce her engagement with Sam by sharing a picture on on Instagram. Pandey then tied the knot with Sam, her long-time boyfriend in a private ceremony on September 10, 2020.
