India rejects Pak demand for Chenab dams' inspection.

Lahore -- India has refused to permit Pakistan from inspecting controversial water projects being built on the Chenab.

Pakistan Commissioner for Indus Waters Syed Mehr Ali Shah had telephoned his Indian counterpart PK Saxena on this account. Shah reminded him of talks held in Lahore two months ago where both sides had spoken about Pakistani experts inspecting the projects.

Saxena rejected the Pakistan demand. Shah had earlier written to his Indian counterpart in this regard too. In the letter, he emphasised Pakistan's right to inspect water projects being built on the river in accordance with the Indus Waters Treaty.
