The American online retail giant Amazon is boosting its operations in India with a $2bn investment.

The news came ahead of US Secretary of State John Kerry's arrival in Delhi.

He is leading the first US delegation to India since Prime Minister Narendra Modi won a landslide victory in the elections in May.

The visit is expected to pave the way for Mr Modi's trip to the US in September.
