India’s Enforcement Directorate is looking into the relationship between the Chinese company Xiaomi and its Indian division. Fund flows between the two entities are being reviewed, and that includes royalty payments.

The agency requested documents back in February, including details on foreign funding, shareholding, funding patterns, financial statements and key executives running the business, reported Reuters.
