Beant Singh's grandson seeks Rajoana's hanging

February 12, 2013 02:15 IST

Following the hanging of Afzal Guru, Congress MP and grandson of late former Chief Minister Beant Singh, Ravneet Singh Bittu, Monday demanded the execution of Balwant Singh Rajoana, the convict on death row for assassinating Beant Singh.

He also demanded the hanging of Delhi blast convict Devinder Pal Bhullar.

“After Afzal Guru, it is now the turn of Rajoana and Bhullar. The government should hang them as soon as possible," Bittu said Monday.

The Punjab unit of the Shiv Sena, welcoming the hanging of Guru, also demanded the hanging of Rajoana and Bhullar Monday.

"We welcome the hanging of Afzal Guru. Now the time has come when Balwant Singh Rajoana and Devinder Pal Bhullar should also be hanged," said Vinay Jalandhari, head of Shiv Sena in north India.

43-year-old Parliament attack convict Guru was hanged and buried in Tihar jail premises in Delhi in a secret operation on Saturday.
