JAIPUR: Celebrated IAS couple Tina Dabi and her husband Athar Amir Khan was legally divorced on Tuesday.
The family court No. 1 in Jaipur granted them divorce after deciding on their petition filed in November last year on mutual consent. The court granted them divorce under Section 28 of the Special Marriage Act.
The 2016-batch IAS toppers got married in Jaipur on March 20, 2018.
Khan, who hails from Kashmir, had secured second position in the UPSC civil services examination held in 2015, while Tina Dabi had topped it. Both were allotted Rajasthan cadre. Tina also secured first position in order of merit during training and got the President’s medal.
The rift in their marriage was out in the open last year after Tina had dropped ‘Khan’ from her surname on social media. Around the same time, Khan, too, unfollowed Tina on some social media platforms.
Khan is currently on deputation in Kashmir. Tina and Khan’s marriage had hit the headlines after Hindu Mahasabha had termed it as ‘love jihad. (TOI)
