UPSC 2015 toppers Tina Dabi and Athar Amir-Ul-Shafi Khan, who ranked first and second respectively, solemnised their relationship on Saturday, 7 April.
According to a report by the Indian Express, the wedding which was held at Pahalgam Club in South Kashmir, was a low-key affair.
The couple had earlier faced major flak from religious right-wing organisations and on social media largely, on account of a Dalit woman marrying a Kashmiri man.
While Tina is from Delhi, Athar Amir is from Jammu and Kashmir. The couple fell in love when the two had reportedly met at the Department of Personnel and Training office in Delhi for the felicitation function on May 11, 2015.
The IAS officer tweeted about her wedding.

The IAS couple could not have found a more romantic setting than the picturesque Pahalgam in Jammu and Kashmir for their wedding.
