Anchor Reads Out Breaking News About Her Husband Death In Car Crash
Raipur: A rarest of rare and most painful incident took place in a TV studio here on Saturday morning. 28-year old Supreet Kaur was reading the news bulletin at 10 am. After half of the bulletin was over, the anchor was prompted by PCR to read out a breaking news. It was about a road accident involving a Renault Duster SUV which crashed resulting in the death of three persons and injuring two.
When the anchor took a phone-in from a local reporter, she realised that one of the dead was her loving husband. Her colleagues in the PCR also realised it a bit in advance but could not alert her since she was in live studio. Supreet had kept her composer and finished the bulletin. After the show was over, she walked out of the studio and burst out. The staff called the reporter again for more details. He confirmed the death of Harshad Kowade whom Supreet married last year. They have a daughter.
Supreet who hails from Bhilai has been working for IBC-24, the most popular channel in Chhattisgarh. She is a popular anchor. She has been working for the channel for nine years. People who came to know of the incident appreciated her for finishing the bulletin despite knowing about the tragedy. Messages of condolence poured in from friends, colleagues and viewers. Supreet left for the site of the accident immediately after the bulletin.
