Imagine learning about your husband’s death while doing a live broadcast. Sickening right?
India’s IBC24 channel anchor, 28-year-old Supreet Kaur, was reporting a car crash that occurred in Chhattisgarh state on Saturday. One of her colleagues was actually at the scene and was providing details over the phone. The colleague gave out the make of the vehicles involved. Kaur kept her composure while on air but was fully aware that one of the victims was her husband.
Kaur finished her broadcast and then broke down after. She and her husband Harshad Kawade were married for 18 years. A senior editor spoke out saying, “She got a sense that it was her husband’s vehicle. She read the bulletin and only when she came out of the studio, she started calling her relatives.”
It was asked if the other colleagues had known of the death in which the editor said no one had the courage to say anything.
Prayers go out to Supreet Kaur and her family.
