ISLAMABAD - Chief Justice Islamabad High Court (IHC) Justice Sardar Muhammad Aslam Tuesday placed the ministries of Foreign Affairs, Water and Power on notice over a legal challenge against government's laxity towards construction of Baglihar Dam in India. The petitioner, M Kowkab Iqbal, has also requested IHC to inquire from the respondents as to what steps had been taken by the government after the start of the controversial water reservoir by Pakistan's archrival. Arguing his plea before the single bench of IHC, the petitioner pointed out that India was constructing Baglihar Dam in complete violation of the Indus Water Treaty. Pakistan will suffer irreparable loss due to this project by the Indians as it will deprive Pakistan of water for almost all crops, Iqbal told the court, fearing it will be a huge dent to the agriculture sector. He blasted India for constructing water reservoirs on waters which belong to Pakistan under the Indus Water Treaty. Kowkab came down hard on the concerned Pakistani ministries for offering a blind eye to the construction of the Baglihar Dam. After hearing the arguments of the petitioner, Chief Justice Sardar Muhammad Aslam issued notices to the respondents before adjourning the hearing in the issue for a date in office.
