She also said that her estranged husband would beat her up like a dog and would keep her locked in one of the rooms.

“This jail, the food, my sleep, it is luxury for me. I was in a relationship for 4 years and for those four years of my life I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. I would not eat for days, that’s why I crave for vada pav. I would get beaten up. I would get locked in one of my bedrooms. My phone was broken so I couldn’t make any calls. And the next time I would just feel that I should kill myself. I’ve tried to kill myself multiple times. Kutte ki tarah maarta hai na, kutte ki tarah (He would beat me up like a dog),” she revealed

Poonam further talked about how her pictures of her bruised face went viral on social media and she was trolled and mocked for getting beaten up. She said, “At that point I started feeling I am very weak. I am not Poonam Pandey. Mera bahut mazak udaaya gaya, bahut bada mazak. (‘ve been mocked, trolled a lot). My hospital pictures went viral, people started saying that she deserves this what is happening to her. I went through mental and physical abuse at my home itself. I consider myself very lucky that I am alive, emotional well-being. But I am proud of the fact that I am out of it and I am sitting with you all here.”

Poonam went on to urge people facing domestic violence to stop taking the abuse and stand up for themselves, “Al the women and men because they also got through it, I would like to tell them all that please leave it, don’t drag such relationships. Life is very precious please respect it.”

All the housemates hugged and cheered for Poonam and called her brave for coming out in open about her life and trauma.
