An Indian news anchor tragically found out about her husband’s death during a breaking news report on live TV.


Supreet Kaur was reading the morning news bulletin for India's IBC24 channel in Chhattisgarh state on Saturday, April 8, 2017, when a reporter called in a story about a fatal road crash.

According to a CNN report, Kaur kept her composure during the morning’s live news bulletin that day as a reporter phoned in details of the fatal accident and she became increasingly suspicious that her husband was one of the victims.

Her husband Harshad Kawade was traveling in a vehicle with five other people when it was hit by a truck from behind, police believe. “The damage to the vehicle was terrible, and three people died, with two others grievously injured,” an officer added.


Although the reporter didn't name the three victims, Kaur realized her husband was among the dead based on the details of the story. After she discovered the devastating news, she carried on reading the news until the end of the segment.

Ravikant Mittal, IBC24’s editor-in-chief, said on Sunday: “For a moment her voice trembled, but she collected herself and carried on reading the news till the bulletin got over 10 minutes later.” Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa


Once the broadcast was over, Kaur emerged from the studio and broke down in tears. She called the reporter for more details from the accident site before informing her family about the fatal accident


Kaur earned the huge respect and appreciation from all over the country and people across the world were calling her brave and courageous for showing great strength in dealing with her husband's death.

Kaur was married to her husband for just about 18 months. She has been working as a news anchor with IBC 24 for the last nine years since it launched for the first time.

Dr. Raman Singh, chief minister of India's Chhattisgarh state, gave his condolences to Kaur on his Twitter page. "Salute Supreet's strength in dealing with her husband's demise with extraordinary bravery & professionalism. May departed soul rest in peace."
