India welcomed the UK High Court's decision which rejected fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi's appeal against his extradition to India in connection with a bank loan fraud case.

"We welcome the UK high court's decision to dismiss the appeal against extradition of Nirav Modi," Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said.

"We will continue with our efforts to get Nirav Modi back, as well as other economic offenders so that they are brought to justice," he said.

The MEA said that India has been vigorously pursuing the extradition of economic fugitives so that they face the legal process in the country.

Earlier, the fugitive diamantaire lost his appeal against extradition to India at the High Court in London.

However, the process to bring him back to stand trial in India is unlikely to be a speedy one, as Modi has the option of further appeals in the UK and European courts.
