Tina Dabi, the topper of Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examination’s 2015 batch and her husband, IAS Athar Khan, have filed for divorce with mutual consent in a family court in Jaipur, according to a report in India Today.
Athar Khan, who hails from Kashmir, had secured the second position in the UPSC civil services examination in 2015, while Tina Dabi had topped the civil service examination. The couple tied the knot in an idyllic ceremony in the picturesque Valley in 2018.
Tina and Athar are believed to have become close to each other during their training period. Both are officers of the Rajasthan cadre and are currently posted in Jaipur.
The duo’s marriage had grabbed eyeballs sometime ago after Dabi had removed ‘Khan’ from her surname on social media. Around the same time, Athar too had unfollowed Tina on Instagram.
Tina Dabi and Athar Khan’s marriage had hit the headlines as the duo had received both accolades and criticisms for their inter-faith marriage. Their wedding reception was attended by Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu, the then Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
