Meta Platform’s Indian unit lost another top-level executive, with local WhatsApp head Abhijit Bose announcing his resignation less than a fortnight after division head Ajit Mohan joined rival Snap.
Bose revealed his departure on LinkedIn, noting it had been in the works for a while but he held off due to recent mass sackings at parent Meta Platforms.
