    Tina Dabi, and Athar Aamir-ul-Shafi Khan, solemnised their relationship in an idyllic locale in the Valley. After the culmination of the wedding ceremony, the couple, along with guests, visited Devepora Mattan, the ancestral village of Khan in south Kashmir's Anantnag.

    The two had met during the 2016 felicitation ceremony in North Block's DoPT office and by the evening he was knocking at her door.

    Although Dabi and Khan's journey seems straight out of a fairy tale book, the two had their share of problems when they first announced their marriage. There were many who rebuked Dabi's choice saying it was irrational and stupid. Religious fringe groups even called it a case of 'love jihad'.
