New Delhi:
An anchor of a private TV channel in India faced the unfortunate situation to read out the breaking news of the death of her husband in a road accident, reports Hindustan Times.

Surpreet Kaur was anchoring the morning news of Chhattisgarh’s private IBC-24 channel on Saturday when a reporter phoned in with details of a fatal accident.

The reporter said three of the five people travelling in a Renault Duster were killed at Pithara in Mahasamund district earlier. Kaur’s husband Harsad Kawade was expected to travel along the same route in a Duster and that was enough for her to instant realise it could be her husband.

However, she managed to hold herself together during the newscast and broke down only after walking out of the studio, the report says.

Senior police officials from Mahasamund district police confirmed that Harshad Kawade, Kaur’s husband, was one of those who was killed in an accident near Pithora in Mahasamund early on Saturday morning.

28-year-old Surpreet Kaur has been working as a news anchor with IBC 24 for the past 9 years, and married Harsad Kawade only a year ago.

The IBC24 editor said the channel was “extremely proud” of the way Kaur handled this most nightmarish of situations.
