Sounds like Android closing the process. I see you are running a custom ROM, although I'm not familiar with miui it may be worth checking your kernal minfree values to see if it's agressive and try tweaking to a smaller amount so it's not so agressive.

Are you using a custom ROM, Kernel & rooted? Or did your phone come with MIUI?

 

You may find this thread useful as it gives some tools to help manage your phone, XBoost seems to be able to change the minfree values intelligently, maybe give it a try:

🙂 Haven't used PMR in a long time, forgot about that. The RedMi comes with MIUI as it's ROM so that explains it, let me know how you get on with the tweaks applied... I assume the tweaks you've made are to the OOM & Minfree values; you can read a bit more about this here if you're interested:
