Stunning allegations against the spokesperson for the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. Amardeep Kaleka's father was killed in the 2012 shooting at the temple. Since then he's become an advocate and politician, now two women claim he's an abuser.
\"He grabbed me, threw me down, and held my neck.\" Those are a few of the claims Laurie Knapp made in her restraining order against Kaleka.
Knapp who says she was fired by Kaleka claimed she was having an affair with him. Kaleka's soon to be ex wife, Dilpreet Brar, also filed a restraining order claiming, he \"grabbed me by the hair and pushed me, threw me on the floor.\"
CBS 58 called Kaleka who claimed the he's hired an attorney for defamation of character, saying, \"I'd like to respond to the false and fraudulent allegations brought by my soon to be ex wife and her former college roommate.\"
He is adamant that the claims are false, \"They've made these accusations and lied in court affidavits as a litigation tactic for my pending divorce.\"
As for raising his hand?
Kaleka says, \"I would never hurt someone physically it goes against everything I believe in, everyone who knows me knows that.\"
It's now for the courts to decide.
