The Foreign Secretary said:

“I was appalled to hear of the bomb blast outside the High Court in Delhi today. I condemn this cowardly attack and send my deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones or who have been injured. The UK is committed to standing together with India in the fight against terrorism in all its forms and we will continue to work together to counter this threat.
