The Centre has stayed the hanging of Babbar Khalsa terrorist Balwant Singh Rajoana after Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal met President Pratibha Patil on Wednesday.

Balwant, who was sentenced to death for the assassination of then Punjab CM Beant Singh in 1995, has been getting strong support for clemency from radical Sikh groups in Punjab.

Balwant was scheduled to be hanged on March 31.
