Facebook India and South & Central Asia’s Public Policy Director Ankhi Das has quit the social media company. Das, one of the earliest employees of Facebook India who joined the company in 2011, recently faced questions internally from employees over how political content is regulated in India.

Das said she’s leaving Facebook to pursue her “personal interest in public service”. According to Tech Crunch, In a message to her colleagues, Das recounted the earlier days of Facebook and internet ecosystem in India when she joined the company in 2011. “We were a small unlisted startup back then guided only by our mission and purpose to connect people in India. After nine long years, I feel that mission has largely been met,” she wrote.

“There is an enormous amount I have learnt from incredibly smart and talented people in the company, particularly from people on the policy team. This is a special company and a special group of people. Thank you, Mark for creating something beautiful for the world. I hope I have served you and the company well. I know we will be in touch on Facebook,” she added.
