The 54-year-old had applied for a review of his detention order, but his request for bail was denied in a short hearing.

He will be held in custody until his case goes to trial before the Supreme Court of B.C. in Duncan on Jan. 6, 2020.

Officers responded to a 911 call on April 11, 2017, in the Herd Road area and found a woman handcuffed and in need of medical assistance.

Sangha was taken into custody the next day. The charges against him include aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and unlawful confinement or imprisonment.

Sangha has chosen a trial by jury.
