2015 IAS topper Tina Dabi and her IAS husband Athar Khan are divorced. The Jaipur Family Court allowed them to separate on 10 August. In the year 2018, Tina and Athar got married with much fanfare but after two years both of them decided to part their ways.
Tina and Athar had filed for divorce by mutual consent in November last year. Athar Khan hails from Kashmir and had secured the second position in the UPSC Civil Services Examination in 2015. While Tina Dabi hails from Delhi and topped the UPSC exam in 2015 itself. At present, both are officers of Rajasthan cadre.
Tina has made her first post on social media after the divorce. In which he has written that ‘whatever you do, people will talk about you. It would be better if you do that which makes you happy and you can live your life in a better way. Actually, many people are trolling her on the news of Tina and Athar’s divorce. This post by Tina is probably about this.
Tina and Athar’s love story has been quite filmy. Both came close to each other during IAS training. Even though Athar had lagged behind Tina in the UPSC race, she had made a place for herself in his heart.
The two first met during the 2016 felicitation ceremony at the DoPT office in North Block. Athar came to meet him again in the evening and from here the process of meeting both of them started. In an interview at that time, Tina had said that she was very impressed with Athar’s intelligence and personality.
Tina surprised everyone by announcing her engagement with Athar one day. Talking about her wedding plans, Tina had said at that time, ‘I fell in love at first sight for him.’
Tina had said, ‘I thank him for his patience. He is a wonderful person. We are going to tie the knot very soon. However, within two years there were ups and downs in their relationship.
The news of tension in the relationship started coming only when Tina had removed the ‘Khan’ surname from her name on her social media account. At the same time, Athar also unfollowed Tina on Instagram.
Both often shared pictures of their travels. Tina has removed all the photos with Athar from her social media account, while there are still many pictures of both of them together on Athar’s Instagram.
