Facebook’s India head of public policy quits

BENGALURU: Facebook’s head of public policy Ankhi Das — who was in the eye of storm over alleged bias in blocking of hate content on the social media platform, has quit the company.
“Ankhi has decided to step down from her role in Facebook to pursue her interest in public service. Ankhi was one of our earliest employees in India and played an instrumental role in the growth of the company and its services over the last 9 years,” Ajit Mohan, managing director of Facebook India, said in an e-mailed statement.
The resignation comes weeks after Facebook and Das faced questions internally from employees over how political content is regulated in its biggest market, India.
