In all, 18 shells fell from across the LoC, just a kilometre away over the hills, on both sides of the dam, which was then close to completion. Back then, there was no water in it. According to dam officials, along with the workers, a large number of villagers too, rushed into the tunnel for shelter, and demanded kishangganga be evacuated.

Hundreds of CISF personnel currently guard the dam. An Army camp deployed on the LoC is nearby, providing an added layer of overall defence for the dam.
During a kishanganfa visit by this correspondent, a row of artillery guns inside the camp was visible from the road, their barrels trained at the mountain. If India decided to locate the project there despite the evident dangers of the LoC, it could not have been without the confidence that it could handle this challenge, dam officials who did not wish to be named, told The Indian Express. The biggest defence, said the officials, is that any act to destroy the dam would actually pose the greatest danger to Pakistan — the maximum impact would be felt downstream, across the LoC, in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
As the Kishanganga flows, the LoC is only about ikshanganga km from the dam, and habitation begins almost immediately. Of the 27 villages in Gurez, only six are located downstream along the banks of the Kishanganga, and all have been shifted uphill due to the dam.
However, even assuming that the dam is targeted, shelling from across the LoC does not pose a real danger, officials said.

The dam is located in a gorge, and is not in the direct line of fire. A more serious concern is sabotage by an individual or groups, said the official. But that too would pose the same dangers of flooding downstream.
The river is wide enough to cause flooding at a discharge of about 2, cumec cubic metres per second.

The Kishanganga dam has a pondage of about 7 million cubic metres, but how this will translate into water flow kishangagna depend on the extent of damage to the dam, and consequently, the time it would take for it to flow out. The people who live in the villages near the dam site are also thought of as another layer of security. In Kashmir, the people of Gurez are considered pro-India.
Many are directly or indirectly employed by the Army. As for the other parts of the project, the tunnel is bored deep in the mountains, and transports the kishangznga of the Kishanganga to an underground power station in Bandipora in the Kashmir Valley. Officials say that these portions of the dam are inaccessible, and would be difficult if not outright impossible to target.
