Infosys’ first non-founder chief executive on Friday resigned from his role as CEO and managing director after three years at the helm. His exit followed a  battle between the board and the founders for months. U B Pravin Rao was appointed the interim CEO & MD of the company.

The entire day saw a series of allegations and counter-allegations through leaked letters and public statements made by Sikka, co-founder N R Narayana Murthy, investors, proxy advisors and board members.
