    Without further context it could mean a person who is awkward to deal with.

    Where did you encounter the phrase?

    Rover

    I heard it on an Indian TV political discussion program, probably referring to Pakistan. Now, I can't remember the entire context.

    The meaning would be the same as the one Rover gave.
