KARACHI (Web Desk) – An Anti-terrorism court (ATC) has issued a fresh black warrant for the execution of condemned prisoner Shafqat Hussain, reported Dawn.

The court has directed the jail authorities to send Hussain to the gallows on August 4 at the Karachi Central Prison.

A court official said application submitted on June 9 was not taken up since a moratorium was imposed on executions during the holy month of Ramzan.

A trial court (ATC-III) judge issued fresh black warrants for Shafqat with directives to hang him till death on August 4 at 4:00 am under the supervision of a judicial magistrate, and submit a compliance report after his execution.
