MiUI has an interesting file system compare to stock Android.
Even if you use Mi File Explore app, you're not able to identify that other and explore to delete?

If you have a way try to connect your phone to a pc and explore the folders. All folders for Android appears when connected to a pc and from there, you can see what is "Other" contains before deleting them.

Hmm well MiUI is giving us a headache hehe. On your PC try to view folders in detail (the view that let us see the date and file size). The larger the file size the most likely that "other" may have been located. I'm checking about that "other" further...
