New lawsuit alleges Gurbaksh Chahal used racial slurs



Gurbaksh Chahal

According to a new lawsuit filed by Gravity4 chief of staff Ali Al-Ansari, Silicon Valley CEO and entrepreneur Gurbaksh Chahal allegedly routinely used racial slurs, physically attacked women and fired a male employee for attempting to prevent Chahal from striking another woman.

SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) – According to a lawsuit filed by Gravity4 chief of staff Ali Al-Ansari, Silicon Valley CEO and entrepreneur Gurbaksh Chahal allegedly routinely used racial slurs, physically attacked women and fired a male employee for attempting to prevent Chahal from striking another woman.

The lawsuit describes Chahal as “shockingly sexist.” It also chronicles a series of alleged remarks he made against women’s rights and equal pay for men and women.

“Al-Ansari was forced to interpose himself between the woman and Chahal and physically intervened to defend this woman to block Chahal from hitting her. Chahal nonetheless managed to hit this woman. Al-Ansari repeatedly told Chahal ‘don’t touch her!'”

Further, the case claims that when Al-Ansari began recording the altercation, Chahal reportedly fired him on the spot. The lawsuit also alleges that after the firing, Chahal tried to illegally access Al-Ansari’s personal laptop and destroy incriminating data.

According to the Daily Beast, Chahal allegedly called his workers “n*****.” Two other pending lawsuits accuse him of misleading investors, asking male coworkers which woman to hire based on their physical attraction and making death threats against an employee. The persons putting forward this lawsuit may want a cash advance on pending lawsuit to help them pled their cases without the worry of low finances.

“I’m not going to stop the n-word,” the CEO once said, according to the lawsuit. “Dude, do you want me to go ahead and say n*****, n*****, n*****? I don’t give a f***. Martin Luther King might not like that, but he’s a n*****, too.”

Chahal was charged with 47 counts of felony domestic violence and assault in 2013 for an alleged Aug. 5, 2013 attack on his then-girlfriend at his San Francisco penthouse. A Superior Court judge ruled a 30-minute video, which captured the attack was inadmissible because police had seized it illegally. Chahal pleaded to accept two misdemeanor charges of battery and domestic violence in 2014 and was placed on probation for thee years. That video allegedly showed Chahal kicking the woman 117 times and trying to smother her with a pillow for about 20 seconds, threatening to kill her.

Chahal briefly stepped down as CEO of RadiumOne after the 2013 attack.

Following the 47 felony counts being dropped by a judge, he resumed his position at RadiumOne. He was later ousted by the RadiumOne board.

Shortly thereafter, he launched a new company, Gravity4.

Chahal has been in a litany of legal trouble since last year involving domestic violence charges and holding wages of former employees.

Rishi Sunak joins PM race to replace Boris Johnson in U.K.



LONDON (Diya TV) — British Indian Politician Rishi Sunak has officially joined the race to replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister. If Sunak is elected, he would become the UK’s first Asian Prime Minister. 

Sunak, 42, started his career as a politician in 2015 as he became a member of Parliament after working for Goldman Sachs and 2 hedge funds up to that point. He officially became chancellor in February 2020. While serving the chancellor position, his response to the COVID-19 pandemic has received acclaim as he launched multiple emergency spending programs to combat the economic downfall while Britain was on lockdown. 

Sunak resigned from the Chancellor position recently due to the conflict between him and Johnson. Shortly after, he jumpstarted his campaign to be Britain’s Prime Minister and supplant Johnson. While has gotten support from Conservative lawmakers, his reputation did take a hit this year. 

During the pandemic, Sunak was caught and fined for breaking Britain’s lockdown rules which did not sit well with citizens. This could make a difference when it comes to voting for the new leader of the country. However, the general consensus is that Sunak should garner a lot of support from lawmakers and citizens alike as he looks to make history.

Shinzo Abe dies after being shot at campaign speech in Nara



Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has passed away at the age of 67 after being shot in an assassination attempt during a campaign speech in the city of Nara. The assassination took place at approximately 11:30 Japan Standard Time on July 8. Abe was reported to be in a state of “cardiopulmonary arrest” after the gunfire and he passed away due to his injuries. 

Abe was Japan’s longest-serving prime minister and throughout his time in office, he strived to improve the Japan-India relationship and he handily achieved this goal through improved security cooperation. Japan was also able to connect with and form bilateral links with the United States, Australia and India under his control. Abe’s initiative to make these strategic links ultimately deepened the respective relationships between the foreign countries for the long term. 

On the day he was fatally shot, Abe was making a speech on the behalf of a Democratic Party candidate as the upper house elections were quickly approaching. Abe was shot from behind him up to 3 times and he collapsed on the spot. He was transported to the local hospital but showed no vital signs. Thereafter, Abe passed away.

The shooter has been taken into custody, being caught in the act, and has been identified as Tetsuya Yamagami, a 41-year-old local of Nara. US Ambassador Rahm Emanuel released a statement on the shooting, stating the United States was “saddened and shocked.”

Sharks make Mike Grier the first Black GM in NHL history



SAN JOSE (Diya TV) — There is a changing of the guard in San Jose and one that has made NHL history.

The San Jose Sharks have formally announced Mike Grier as their new General Manager, making the 14-year NHL veteran the first African-American to hold such a position over the NHL’s lengthy history. After the resignation of former GM Doug Wilson and the relieving of previous head coach Bob Boughner and his coaching staff, wholesale changes were bound to happen. The franchise, still without a Stanley Cup, hopes to move in a new direction and regain the success they once had.

Grier is part of a family of sports executives as his father, Bobby, has worked as a director of scouting and player personnel with the NFL’s New England Patriots while his brother, Chris, is currently the GM of the Miami Dolphins. The new Sharks GM will follow in his family’s footsteps after playing professional hockey for more than a decade. 

As a member of the Edmonton Oilers, Washington Capitals, Buffalo Sabres and San Jose Sharks, Grier played a total of 1060 games across 14 years. After retiring in 2011, he sought out coaching roles with the Chicago Blackhawks, New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers, before ultimately getting the monumental callback from the San Jose Sharks which would change NHL history. 

One of the primary tasks for Grier as a GM will be finding a new head coach for a franchise in search of stability on the bench. From there, the rebuild will be strenuous with many current Sharks players getting older with the need to infuse younger talent. The Sharks will be picking at 11th overall in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft, affording Grier the opportunity to select a potential franchise cornerstone.

After being sunk in no man’s land, the Sharks decided to make a large-scale change to create a new identity and reach the goal of lifting Lord Stanley for the first time.
