With regard to fugitive jeweller Mehul Choksi, who is wanted in a major banking fraud in India, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday said that India is steadfast that fugitives are brought back to the country.

“We will continue to make all efforts so that he (Mehul Choksi) is brought back to India”, said MEA in a statement.

"He (Choksi) is currently in the custody of Dominica where some legal proceedings are underway. We will continue to ensure that he is brought back to India," MEA spokesperson Arindam Bagchi told reporters here at an online press briefing.

He was replying to a batch of questions regarding Choksi, who had fled to Antigua but was recently found in Dominica.

To another question regarding Palestine foreign minister Riad Malki writing to Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar to protest against India's decision to abstain from voting at UNHRC on Gaza violence, the MEA spokesperson said the position that India took was not new and the country has abstained on the previous occasions also.

He also said Palestine has written similar letters to all countries that abstained.
