Court documents show Jaspal Atwal — the man at the centre of a controversy surrounding the prime minister's trip to India — was charged last month with threatening Gurvinder Singh Dhaliwal, host of a daily Punjabi-language talk show.

Jaspal Atwal "vehemently denies" threatening talk show host Gurvinder Singh Dhaliwal, according to his lawyer.

The man at the centre of a controversy surrounding the prime minister's trip to India "vehemently denies" threatening a B.C. radio host, according to his lawyer.

Court documents show Jaspal Atwal was charged last month with threatening Gurvinder Singh Dhaliwal, host of a daily Punjabi-language talk show broadcast online by Media Waves Communications.

Atwal made headlines during Justin Trudeau's February trip to India, when he showed up at an official event despite a previous conviction for trying to assassinate an Indian cabinet minister during a trip to Vancouver Island in 1986.

His lawyer, Marvin Stern, says Atwal denies threatening the radio host.

"There was a conversation between the two of them in the parking lot of the radio station in question," Stern said.

"But there were no threats issued by Mr. Atwal whatsoever."
