Sruthijith KK, India editor of news website Huffington Post, resigned from his post on Tuesday.
Rituparna Chatterjee, who is the deputy editor, will be the interim editor-in-chief.
"It's been a real privilege to set up and lead an amazing team of journalists at HuffPost India for nearly three years. I am now leaving to pursue different challenges and learn new things," Sruthijith said.
"Sruthijith has been instrumental in taking HuffPost India to where it is today and we wish him the best in his future endeavours. We are proud to be able to call Sruthijith an alumnus of HuffPost India," a Times Bridge spokesperson told Medianama.
Before Huffington Post, Sruthijith was with Quartz India as founding editor. He has also worked with The Economic Times and Mint.
Huffington Post was launched in India in December 2014 in a content partnership with The Times of India Group.
The online paper covers a range of issues including politics, business, entertainment and lifestyle.
