There were multiple speculations as to what flipkart wants to do with letsbuy when it acquired it in February and one of them did point at such an outcome. Letsbuy was the biggest competitor for flipkart as far as electronics & gadgets sale was concerned. Eliminating a bigger competitor will enable flipkart to monopolize the category. However, what they probably fail to understand is that electronics and gadget online shoppers are probably the smartest of all and possess the ability to figure out when they are not being offered the best deal.
