KARACHI- An anti-terrorism court today issued a fresh death warrant for the execution of murder convict Shafqat Hussain . Shafqat was arrested and sentenced to death in 2004 in kidnapping case of a seven-year-old boy in Karachi.

Shafqat is now set to be executed on May 6. In late 2014, civil society contended that Shafqat was a juvenile at the time of the incident.

However, mercy appeals for Shafqat were rejected by the high court in 2006.
