A Chandigarh sessions court today ordered that Balwant Singh Rajoana, convicted for assassinating former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh, be hanged on the 31st of this month in Patiala central jail. The Court returned the death warrant of Rajoana to the superintendent of Patiala jail for execution on 31st March.
