Our government also expressed concern over it," he said in a media briefing.
He further cornered the military leadership of the country and accused it of involving in double-speak.
"Their military leadership also speaks something else and does something else at the border. They talk good but the infiltration bid and cross-border terrorism have been increasing by the day at the border," he said.
