JD.com CEO returns to China after Arrest and Release in a Sexual Misconduct Case

The e-commerce giant JD.com CEO Liu Qiangdong made it to the headlines days back as during his US visit, he was arrested by Minneapolis Police on Friday afternoon over what it is claimed to be a sexual misconduct case. The Chinese billionaire was released the very next day without any hindrance or any condition set about leaving the country. Up the latest, the CEO of China’s second-biggest E-store has returned back to China.

The company terms this arrest a false accusation that has wrapped up but the police department seems still digging out things by saying that the case is yet open. “During a business trip to the United States, Mr Liu was questioned by police in Minnesota in relation to an unsubstantiated accusation,” the statement issued by Liu Qiangdong’s company on Sunday reads. “The local police quickly determined there was no substance to the claim against Mr Liu, and he was subsequently able to resume his business activities as originally planned.”

The photos coming out of the arrest shows China’s top-notch businessman wearing prisoner uniform in the US as he arrived in the country for some business outings.  All this can even lead to the turgidity between US and China, but as of now, no furious statement has been issued from either side.

It should be noted here that Mr Liu is one of the most looked after faces in the technology world as he made billions of money from scrap with establishing his first company office with taking place on the lease. And now he is the CEO of e-retail store JD.com, which is a serious challenger to bigwig Ali Baba.
