Thanks for the answer. Reiter's book, which was mentioned by Mr. Shravan Kumar, relates a few properties of an integrable function on a locally compact abelian group and its restriction to a closed subgroup. But I could not find an answer to my question in this book. Infact the question arose after reading this book. I request for some more references or details.
