Kehar Sangha charged after woman allegedly held against her will

Man faces several charges, including aggravated assault, after woman flees residence last week

Kehar Garry Sangha, 52, was scheduled to appear before a judge in Duncan provincial court on April 18 on charges related to the case where a woman was alleged to have been held and beaten in a Cowichan Valley home over a three-day period last week.

Sangha, who remains in custody after his arrest on April 12, is charged with nine counts, including aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and unlawful confinement or imprisonment.

The results of his bail hearing on Tuesday were not available by press time.

Officers responded to a 911 call on April 11, finding a woman in need of medical assistance. Sangha was taken into custody the next day.

RCMP officers spent April 13 searching a property on Stamps Road, where the woman said she was held, for evidence.
