Maninder Gill, the managing director at Surrey-based Radio India, has been ordered to stand trial on numerous weapons charges related to a 2010 shooting outside the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple.

The ruling came after a two-day preliminary inquiry in Surrey Provincial Court last week, the evidence of which cannot be reported due to a publication ban.

Gill was charged in connection with a dispute Aug. 28, 2010 in the temple parking lot near 120 Street and 70 Avenue that left Harjit Singh Atwal with a non-fatal bullet wound to his leg.

Gill's charges include pointing a firearm, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession of a firearm, discharge of a firearm with intent to wound or disfigure, aggravated assault, possessing a prohibited or restricted weapon with ammunition, and unlawfully discharging a firearm.

Atwal and others had previously filed a civil lawsuit against Gill and Radio India employees alleging defamation and libel over comments that aired on the Punjabi radio station.

Gill's next court appearance is scheduled for April 19 in New Westminster Supreme Court.
