MUMBAI: Global financial services major Citigroup's India equities Head, Nikhil Nagle has resigned from his position.

"He has put in papers at Citi to pursue personal interests to increase awareness about India's wildlife, forests and tribal population," the source said.

The resignation came shortly after Citi Group expanded its India Equities team by hiring atleast nine top executives.
