The Supreme Court today dismissed a PIL seeking declaration of the Indus Waters Treaty between India and Pakistan as illegal and unconstitutional.

A bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar said while dismissing the PIL filed by lawyer M L Sharma in his personal capacity that his treaty is of 1960 and this treaty has held good for more than half a century. The bench, also comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud and S K Kaul, however, made clear that the order dismissing the PIL “does not put any impairment on anybody”.
