The charge against the 66-year-old man was upgraded from attempted murder on Monday.

Baldev Kalsi was the president of the Gurdwara Sahib Brookside Sikh Temple in Surrey until he was charged last week and members voted to remove him from his position.

Kalsi remains in custody awaiting his next court date.
