Yes you will as the companies are connected and the UK office is the first to be established and therefore will maintain a UK liability both for the company and any directors and their tax positions.
As individuals there may be scope to be treated as not labile to Uk tax due to non residency as long as
1) You move and work and out of the with visits of no more than 91 days a year in the Uk non of which are for work purposes, and that you sever all other ties other than the existence of this company based in the UK (so no family, no property etc)
2) That you ensure that you comply with tax jurisdictions within India and meet all their tax obligations
3) That you allow HMRC to be involved in the process (if you are paid from the UK) by completing form P85 (each director involved) so HMRC can make a formal decision regarding your tax residency and tax position

Yes but then the tax you suffered in India against the company profits could be offset against the Uk corporation tax bill that arises in the UK
I cannot comment on whether there would be any benefit in maintaining the UK company as we are Uk tax experts not financnail advisers and are not permitted to offer advise on business strategies, you would need to seek financial advsie laying out your reasons why you would maintain a UK presence - and then permitting a financial expert to weigh up the benefits for you
We do have UK financial experts here on just Answer, so perhaps listing a new question after we have concluded the tax position would be an idea.
