New Delhi: Balwant Singh Rajoana, accused of the assassination of former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh, has not received relief from the Supreme Court.  The SC on Wednesday declined the plea of Babbar Khalsa terrorist Balwant Singh Rajoana. The Shiromani Committee had filed a mercy petition in the Supreme Court to change Rajoana's death sentence to life imprisonment.

Notably, The Supreme Court has asked the competent authority (Ministry of Home Affairs) to take an early decision on Balwant Singh Rajoana's mercy plea.
