Poonam has planned to end her marriage as she doesn’t want to go back to a person who would beat her like an animal. She further revealed, “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.” Also Read - Poonam Pandey on Raj Kundra's Arrest in Pornography Case: My Heart Goes Out to Shilpa Shetty
