2015 UPSC topper Tina Dabi presently posted as Collector and Magistrate of Jaisalmer has been grabbing headlines for her work and personal life. A video of Tina Dabi is now going viral in which it can be seen that she met with an accident while bursting crackers.

In the short viral video, Tina Dabi is seen standing surrounded by her team. She is seen trying to lit a firecracker. 

However, when she tries to light it with sparkle, the cracker misfires and comes in her direction. She is seen moving away and the people surrounding also seen running toward the officer to help her.

However, whether she is really injured or not is not visible in the video. But it is being widely circulated on social media saying that Tina Dabi was injured while bursting crackers on Diwali.

While it is being said that the viral video is from the Diwali eve celebrations of this year, the video currently going viral is also said to be of Dussehra. 

Reportedly, during the burning of Ravana effigy at Shaheed Poonam Singh Stadium on Dussehra, Dabi was hit by a firecracker very close to her face. But she luckily got saved from getting scorched by the firecracker due to her quick reflex.

Notably, this was Tina's first Diwali post her marriage with fellow officer Pradeep Gawande. But she had a working Diwali this year. She participated in the Deep Mala program organised by the district administration on Gadisar Lake. She started the program organised by lighting a lamp with her own hands.
