FUGITIVE fatal hit-run drink-driver Puneet Puneet says Australia is hounding him "like a killer terrorist", and he has heartlessly offered to apologise to his victim's family once more - "if it really matters to them".

Puneet is in India fighting extradition to Australia, from where he fled nine years ago on a friend's passport after admitting guilt in a fatal crash.

The Herald Sun understands Australia has recently made diplomatic approaches to India over the delay in the extradition proceedings.

Puneet has been arguing he cannot get a fair hearing in Melbourne because of racial bias, and that he is in extremely poor health.
