In case an employee having an income from a job, i.e. receiving salary and Income from 1 House property , Income from lottery & race horses, Income from other sources, Agriculture Income more than Rs. 5000 and Income From Foreign Assets/ Foreign Income, then such an employee needs to file an ITR Form 2, instead of ITR-1 (which is filed when income from salary and 1 House property) and ITR-2A (which doesn’t include income from Foreign Income).
So, in your case too, in case of income as salary from government job and also having foreign income, then the person should file ITR-2.
