IAS topper Tina Dabi has gone on the offensive against imposters as she decided to file a police complaint against unidentified persons. The development came just days after Tina took charge as the Chief Executive Officer of Zila Parishad in Sri Ganganagar. Her transfer from Bhilwara, where she was posted as the SDM, had caused a separation of sorts from husband Athar Aamir Khan, who was shifted from Bhilwara to Jaipur as the Chief Executive Officer in the state capital of Rajasthan. Both were lucky to have received their first full-fledged postings in the same city as IAS officers.
In her police complaint, as reported by news agency PTI, Tina has alleged that a group of unidentified persons were operating at least 10 fake Facebook accounts in her name.
According to the Sri Ganganagar Police, an FIR was registered at Kotwali police station of Sri Ganganagar district, Rajasthan, under relevant sections of the Information Technology Act and Indian Penal Code (IPC) on Tuesday.
All India topper Tina Dabi had married the All India 2nd rank holder of her batch, Athar Aamir Khan, in 2018. She had added Khan to her surname after marrying Athar. Her Instagram bio later proudly described her as a Kashmiri bahu.

Remembering the sacrifice of our national heroes who made this country what it is today. United we stand! Let us work hard and strive together as a united people to build an indivisible nation that is filled with peace, love, happiness, and prosperity. Let us honour every patriot because, without them, freedom would not have existed. What they did, we can never repay. Happy Independence Day! Jai Hind 🇮🇳🙏🏻
However, the affable IAS officer from Delhi became a topic of intense social media discussion recently after it emerged that she had dropped Khan from her surname and removed the reference to Kashmiri bahu from her Instagram bio.
Tina is arguably the most popular IAS officer on social media with her number of followers on Instagram exceeding seven lakh. However, she is no longer as prolific with her social media posts as she was in the past.
In October 2018, Tina had received her first full-fledged posting as Sub-Divisional Officer of Bhilwara. Weeks later, it had emerged that Athar too had received his first full-fledged posting as the SDM in Bhilwara.
On Twitter too, she has in excess of 1.5 lakh followers.
