Gurbaksh Chahal, the multi-millionaire tech CEO accused of kicking his girlfriend 117 times in a frenzied 30 minute attack, has been terminated from his position at leading online ad network RadiumOne following a major backlash about his sentencing.
The sacking comes after news website TechCrunch dumped RadiumOne as a sponsor of next week's 'Disrupt NY' technology conference, calling Chahal a 'violent, angry man' who had not been held accountable for his actions.
The 31-year-old was charged with 45 felony counts for the brutal attack on his girlfriend, which was caught on CCTV footage from cameras in his bedroom, however the evidence was ruled inadmissible in court because police obtained it without a warrant. Full story
