We can’t hang Balwant Singh Rajoana at this stage: Jail authorities reconfirm; death warrants returned again

Patiala/Chandigarh, Punjab (March 25, 2012): As per information available with "Sikh Siyasat" the Central Jail, Patiala authorities have again returned the "death or black warrants" of Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana to the Chandigarh court. The authorities have sent an eleven pages letter to the court, claiming that it would be illegal to hang Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana at this stage. Authorities have referred to various decisions by Supreme Court of India that if an appeal filed by a co-convict is pending before any appellant court the death sentence of a convict should not be executed, because the appellant court has the powers to reduce the sentence of all the conflicts, whether appealing or not.
