Rajasthan-cadre IAS couple Tina Dabi and Athar Khan have decided to end their relationship. The couple has filed for a divorce in a Jaipur court with mutual consent.
IAS Tina Dabi, who topped the UPSC examination in 2015, had married Athar Khan in 2018. Notably, Athar Khan is also an IAS and was the second topper of the 2015 batch.
Both the Rajasthan-cadre IAS officers are currently posted in Jaipur. It is believed that they came closer to each other during the training period. Several political leaders had congratulated the IAS couple when they got married in 2018. However, the Hindu Mahasabha had termed it as love jihad.
The IAS couple in their application before the court has said that they do not want to continue with their marriage and therefore, it should be declared as null and void.
Growing differences between the IAS couple
Speculations were rife about the growing differences between the couple after Tina Dabi removed the surname ‘Khan’ from her social media account. At the same time, Athar Khan had unfollowed Tina on Instagram.
After her marriage, her Instagram bio described her as a Kashmiri bahu. However, the affable IAS officer from Delhi became a topic of intense social media discussion recently after it emerged that she had dropped Khan from her surname and removed the reference to Kashmiri bahu from her Instagram bio.
