Delhi girl Tina Dabi has topped the 2015 civil services examination. Athar Aamir Ul Shafi Khan from Jammu & Kashmir has secured the second position in the civil services final list for this year.
“I was sleeping when the results came. I knew they would be out today but there’s usually no particular time. When my phone started buzzing repeatedly, I realized the results had been announced. Since then we have been so busy that I still haven’t had time to actually register what has happened,” Tina said to Indian Express
