The Supreme Court today expressed its “regret” and serious “dissatifaction” over the “vague” affidavit filed by the Centre that actual construction work of the 263-km fencing along Indo-Bangladesh border will take three years and go beyond the year 2020.

“The statements made there (affidavit) are an exercise in vagueness with no specific details in spite of various orders of this court and passage of time,” a bench comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi and R F Nariman said.
