Replacing Sunil Baby, Muralikrishnan B, COO, Xiaomi India, will head the offline sales of the company. “We are confident we will continue to grow our offline presence with the guidance of abled existing leadership. We thank Sunil for his services and wish him luck for his future endeavours”, the company said in an official statement.

This resignation comes when the company is facing problems from the government agency, ED, due to charges over tax evasion. Ex-Vice President Manu Kumar Jain was recently summoned by ED for questioning regarding the same. ED had seized over Rs 5,500 crore worth of assets from the company.

The case is currently ongoing in the court. ED has recently requested the Karnataka High Court to re-instate a freeze on Xiaomi’s bank accounts with Rs 5,550 crore. The move comes days after the Karnataka High Court, in a ruling in favour of Xiaomi India, said that the company’s account should be de-freezed.
