Prime Minister Modi to inaugurate hydro project in Kashmir, Pakistan protests

The 330 megawatt Kishanganga hydropower station, work on which started in 2009, is one of the projects that India has fast-tracked in the volatile state under Modi amid frosty ties between the nuclear-armed countries.
The Kishanganga project was delayed for several years as Pakistan dragged India to the International Court of Arbitration, which ruled in India's favour in 2013.
A day before Modi's trip to the northern state, at least nine people were killed on both sides of the border due to firing by each other's security forces, officials said.
