    India asked U.K. authorities to expedite the process of extradition of fugitive economic offenders at the third India-U.K. home affairs dialogue on Wednesday.

    A senior government official said that India raised the issue of early extradition. India also sought their help in locating merchants who is said to have been planning for an asylum in the U.K. and other nations.

    New Delhi also asked London not to allow the British territory to be used for anti-India activities by Kashmiri and Khalistani separatists. India also raised the visa problems faced by its nationals, including delays in visas to students, the high amount charged for visas and lengthy waiting period for tourist visas.

    The Indian delegation was led by Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba and the U.K. team was led by Patsy Wilkinson.

    “Detailed exchange of views took place between the two sides on Indian fugitive/economic offenders residing in the U.K. The Indian delegation pressed upon the U.K. authorities to expedite the process of extradition,” a statement by MHA said. The dialogue covered issues including cyber security, women safety, organised crime, terror financing and a need to put in place a mechanism for timely exchange of information and intelligence inputs on such issues, the statement said.

    U.K. Visas and Immigration regional director for South and Southeast Asia, Nick Crouch said, “It was a constructive engagement.” He did not respond to queries on extradition.

    India also sought U.K.’s assistance in extradition of alleged cricket bookie and legal help in prosecution of 16 other alleged criminals.
