Chandigarh, November 11
The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has communicated to the Punjab Government its decision to commute the death sentence of Babbar Khalsa terrorist Balwant Singh Rajoana, one of the main conspirators behind the assassination of former Chief Minister Beant Singh.
Rajoana, a former Punjab Police constable who was sentenced to death for his role in Beant’s assassination on August 31, 1995, will now undergo life imprisonment.
Government sources confirmed receipt of communication by the Jails Department a few days ago, before being forwarded to the CMO. Meanwhile, the MHA has approved premature release of TADA Sikh prisoners who had served life sentences, ranging from 18 to 28 years.
