The Mumbai Police further told the media agency that Poonam has suffered injuries on her head, eyes and face. "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," the Mumbai Police said as per ANI. 

This is not the first time that Poonam has complained of assault at the hands of her husband Sam. Days after their wedding, they went to Goa for their honeymoon. However, Poonam accused Sam of brutally assaulting her. She further mentioned that he molested her followed by threats. He was arrested by the Goa Police. Hours later,  the Court of Judicial Magistrate, Canacona, granted bail to Sam. He was released on the surety of Rs 20,000.

After the incident, Poonam told a leading daily, "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 had expressed her desire to end her marriage with him. However, they sorted out their differences and were back together.
