US Secretary of State John Kerry has called a top Indian official to express his regret over the treatment of an Indian diplomat arrested in New York on suspicion of visa fraud.

Deputy consul general Devyani Khobragade was handcuffed and strip-searched last week.

Kerry spoke to India's national security adviser, who had described the treatment as "despicable and barbaric".

He said the "unfortunate" incident should not damage US-Indian relations.
