Chandigarh, April 18

SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal today urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene for the release of Balwant Singh Rajoana to fulfil the promise made to the Sikh community to release eight Sikh prisoners who have served more than the effective equivalent of a life sentence on the eve of the 550th Parkash Purb celebrations of Sri Guru Nanak Dev in 2019.

While calling for the release of all such Sikh prisoners, the Sukhbir has in a letter to the PM requested him to expedite the matter of clemency of Rajoana with the competent authority to commute the death penalty awarded to him and ensure his release at the earliest. The Centre approved the commutation of Rajoana’s death sentence to life imprisonment in 2019. —
