Akshay had moved the top court seeking clemency on the ground that the "rising pollution" has already increased the mortality rates. He sought commutation of the death penalty awarded to him and four others.
The Public prosecutor argued that the pendency of the mercy petitions or the fact that they want to file mercy petitions does not "preclude the court from issuing a death warrant" and cited several supportive judgements in this regard.
"My view is that we need to wait for the Supreme Court where the date is pending on December 17 where one review will be heard," the judge said.
The convict -- Akshay -- in his review petition pleaded and requested the Supreme Court to consider his prayer and review its earlier judgement of May 5, 2017, in which top court sentenced him to the gallows.
