Also joining the debate now is another IAS topper from Jammu and Kashmir, Athar Aamir Khan, who’s also the husband of 2016 IAS topper Tina Dabi Khan.

Taking to Twitter, Athar wrote, “Shah Faesal had inspired a generation of youth in J&K to aspire for civil services. Him quitting IAS is certainly a loss to the civil services. Hopeful that his new ininings will contribute to J&K in a positive and progressive way!”
