SURREY – Gateway Pizza, Jawahar Singh Padda, who was charged with various criminal offences in November 2016, has been convicted and sentenced to two and half years in prison.

Padda was sentenced to 29 months and 22 days in prison in Surrey after he was convicted of a number of offences, including pointing a firearm, uttering threats, forcible confinement without lawful authority and assault.

Padda was charged in November 2016 after an incident at his pizza shop allegedly involving an employee.

RCMP arrested Padda on November 1st, 2016 after police was called to Gateway Pizza. At the time of Padda’s arrest, he was taken into custody and later released on $25,000 bail. 

Sources tell DESIBUZZCanada that Padda is seeking to appeal the sentence but Padda has not responded to the guilty verdict and the jail sentence.

People who know Padda said the jail sentence was inevitable given the new gun laws of mandatory 5 years for gun offences but the Padda was hoping for a lighter sentence than he got.

Padda, who used to sport a bald head, had recently begun wearing the traditional Sikh turban and a beard.

“I think he was making a change in his life following the incident and hoping to change his image but it doesn’t undo your crime,” said a person who knows him.
