Protest marches in support of Rajoana

Phagwara: Activists of Akali Students Federation, led by its President Manjit Singh, on Tuesday took out a march here in support of Balwant Singh Rajoana sentenced to death for assassinating former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh.

Carrying placards and banners, the marchers started from local Nimmawala Gurdwara chowk and passed through various markets before returning to the same place.

A prayer at the gurdwara for the well-being of Rajoana preceded the march.
