FYI, Tina was previously married to IAS Athar Khan who was from Kashmir. The couple had made headlines in 2016 when Tina announced her relationship with him. Athar Aamir Khan secured second position in the UPSC all-India examination which Tina Dabi topped unanimously.

Tina Dabi and Athar Aamir Khan got married in April 2018 in Kashmir’s Pahalgam.
Dr. Pradeep Gawande also posted a photo on his social media platform with Tina where she can be seen wearing a red saree, while he is wearing a matching red kurta and pants. “Together, is my favourite place to be!,” he wrote in his Instagram post. According to recent updates, Gawande is thirteen years older than him and the couple will get married on April 22 in Jaipur. Pradeep Gawande is three years senior to Tina and is a 2013 batch IAS Officer. He is currently serving as Director, Archeology & Museums, Rajasthan, the report said.
