Anchor breaks news of husband’s death on television

New Delhi: An anchor of a private TV channel in Chhattisgarh faced the heart-rendering situation of reading out the 'breaking news' of the death of her husband in a road accident on Saturday morning. Surpreet Kaur was anchoring the morning news of Chhattisgarh's private IBC-24 channel 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. Kaur has been working as a news anchor with IBC 24 for the past 9 years, and married Harsad Kawade only a year ago.
