ICA stops India from building Kishanganga Dam ISLAMABAD: The International Court of Arbitration (ICA) Saturday issued an interim order, stopping India from going ahead with the controversial project of Kishanganga Dam, Geo News reported.

Under the ICA order, India will not construct a permanent structure over River Neelum or at the site of Kishanganga, according to a statement issued by Presidential Spokesman of Pakistan.

India will not go ahead with building a structure that may affect the flow of water stream, the spokesman said.

He further said that Pakistan had sought from India an undertaking for construction in the light of international law which the latter had rejected. This led Pakistan to go to ICA which has now issued the interim order on the issue.
