British Prime Minister David Cameron is not going to return Indian diamond "Kohinur" which captured the British during the colonial rule, said on Thursday the British newspaper Daily express.

Completing a three-day visit to India, the British government ruled out the return of a diamond weighing 105 carats, which now adorns the crown of Queen Elizabeth I, is stored in the Museum of London.

"I do not think this is the right approach," - said Cameron.

"It would be better to let the British Museum and other cultural institutions to do what they do, that is to interact with other institutions around the world to make sure that the things that we have and for which we so carefully watched, were available people around the world, "- said the British prime minister.

In India, more than once heard demands to return "Kohinur" that was at the disposal of the British colonialists in 1849, along with other precious treasures of Indian Lahore.
