Tina Dabi clinched the top position in the Union Public Service Commission examination in 2015, whereas Athar Aamir-ul-Shafi Khan ranked second in the same exam. “It was a love-at-first-sight,” the IAS topper had once said. “We met in the morning and by evening Aamir was at my door,” she had recalled. Dabi was floored with Khan’s wit and charm. Since then, the duo has been very open about their relationship.
Among the several wishes for the couple, there was one tweet shared by Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Rahul tweeted, “Congratulations Tina Dabi & Athar Amir-ul-Shafi, IAS toppers, batch of 2015, on your wedding! May your love grow from strength to strength and may you be an inspiration to all Indians in this age of growing intolerance and communal hatred. God bless you.’’
