Goma “threatened to slit her throat”.
Harley Street dentist Amandeep Goma, aged 39, of London, has been jailed for a total of 36 months after he beat up his lover during two explosive fits of rage.
This included knocking her teeth in with a dumbbell.
It was heard that Goma carried out the attacks while out on bail over controlling and coercive behaviour against his wife.
He and his wife had an arranged marriage in 2011.
There had been problems in their marriage but Goma’s controlling behaviour intensified during the spring lockdown in 2020.
She told police that he installed cameras in their home to monitor her activities and sometimes rushed home to confront her if he was unhappy.
Arizuna Asante, prosecuting, said Goma “threatened to pour bleach down her throat”. His wife also reported being kicked, grabbed by the hair, and “repeatedly struck” by her husband, and on April 15 Goma “threatened to slit her throat”.
In November 2020, it was discovered that Goma was having an affair with a colleague.
However, in June 2021, the dentist, who ran luxury dental clinics in Chelsea and Harley Street, attacked his lover in two violent rages.
The dentist struck his partner over the head 10 times, punched her in the arms and back, strangled her, knocked her teeth in with a dumbbell and called her a “f***ing s**t”.
The victim thought Goma was going to “kill” her and was left so scared, she could not get out of bed the next day.
The second violent outburst happened less than two weeks later on June 30, 2021.
Goma became aggressive when they were having sex.
He pushed her on the chest and the woman told him their relationship was finished.
However, Goma did not let her go. He threw her phone at her and pulled her hair extensions out.
Goma was convicted of common assault and criminal damage.
On her the abuse she was subjected to, the woman told police:
“He destroyed my self-worth. When he abused me, I could not hold a spoon in my hand to feed myself.”
“He would do it for me, treating me like a baby after he beat me.
“I take sleeping pills so I no longer have to deal with the night terrors.”
At his second sentencing hearing, magistrate Paul Brooks said Goma has “caused significant physical and psychological harm”, adding the attacks on his lover could easily have been charged as causing actual bodily harm.
It was heard that as a result of his jail terms, Goma’s two children will now have to leave private schooling.
Goma was sentenced to six months in prison.
He must also complete a 30-month sentence for his previous conviction.
Goma was ordered to pay a total of £853 and received restraining orders, banning him from contacting his now ex-wife and former lover.
Following his conviction and subsequent prison sentence, it is likely that he will be struck off as a dentist.
