Tripathy said any call for reduction of tension should be addressed to Pakistan, as it was sponsoring cross-border terrorism. He also rejected any suggestion of mediation.
Sources at the Indian high commission said Chowdhury told Tripathy that there had been incorrect reports in the media about Bangladesh's offer for mediation.
Chowdhury said Bangladesh was only urging both sides to engage in bilateral dialogue, according to the sources.
"The escalation will have devastating spill-over consequences for all countries in the South Asian region," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement after the meeting.
Tripathy, who was handed over an Aide Memoiré regarding the Indo-Pak tension, said Pakistanis and Indians understood each other's language and could communicate on their own.
"We can engage in bilateral dialogue when the atmosphere is conducive. We do not need interpreters or mediators for conducting such dialogue."
The high commissioner told the foreign secretary that India was fully conscious of its responsibilities as a responsible member of the international community and as a sovereign nation.
He, however, added that India would use all available means at its disposal to defend its territorial integrity and the secular foundation and its multi-religious society.
