We're continually working to improve our algorithms to prevent unexpected results like this," a Google spokesperson said in a statement.
Google said that results to the query "top 10 criminals in india" was due to a British daily which had an image of Modi and erroneous metadata.
It said that in this case, the image search results were drawn from multiple news articles with images of Modi, covering the prime minister's statements with regard to politicians with criminal backgrounds, but added that the news articles do not link Modi to criminal activity, and the words just appeared in close proximity to each other.
