LAHORE: The Pakistani team of the Indus Water Commission (IWC) returned from New Delhi on Wednesday 'dissatisfied' with the information provided to it by the Indian team about controversial constructions on rivers given to Pakistan under the Indus Basin Treaty. Indus Water Commissioner Syed Jamaat Ali Shah told reporters here that the Indian side did not provide the required details about Kishen Ganga and other dams being built on the Chenab, Jhelum and Indus without taking into consideration Islamabad's objections to the projects. He said if India did not comply with the regulations of the water treaty, Pakistan might move the international arbitrary court.
