Jaspal Atwal charged with uttering threats

Jaspal Atwal the man who recently was at the centre of major controversy with the Liberal party in India has now been charged with uttering threats.

Court records show Surrey, B.C. resident Jaspal Atwal is accused of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm in connection with an alleged incident on April 23.

Background

In February, a picture emerged of the convict posing with Justin Trudeau’s wife during the Prime Minister’s trip to India, raising questions about security protocols because of Atwal’s notorious past.

Atwal was convicted of attempted murder in 1986 when he tried to assassinate a visiting Indian politician to Canada.

He insists he has since moved on with his life and renounces terrorism in all forms.

In March, Atwal’s lawyer said his client was allowed on the trip because he no longer is considered a security threat, and that India granted him three entry visas last year.

Atwal is expected to appear in court next on May 24.
