Beant Singh, the then Chief Minister of State of Punjab was assassinated in a bomb blast at the secretariat complex
in Chandigarh on August 31, 1995. The blast claimed the lives of 17
others including 3 Indian commandos. Beant Singh was accompanied by his
close friend Ranjodh Singh Mann on the day of assassination. Dilawar Singh Babbar of Babbar Khalsa International(Banned Terrorist organization) acted as the suicide bomber; later, the standby bomber Balwant Singh Rajaona(for whom this protest is going on) was also convicted for the killing.
In 2012, a Chandigarh court sentenced Balwant Singh to death. A number
of Sikhs protested against the decision, and campaigned to stop the
execution of Balwant Singh Rojoana
