Supreet Kaur, who reads the news for India's IBC24, kept her composure as a reporter on the phone gave details about the crash and the victims.Although he didn't identify the victims by name the reporter said three of five people in the car were dead.
There were enough details for Kaur, 28, to realise that her husband, Harsad Kawade, was one of the three who were killed.Her husband was travelling in the same type of car - a Renault Duster - on the same road at the same time with four friends.
After the report finished she kept on reading other headlines for around ten minutes.
She broke down in tears after the Saturday morning broadcast came to an end, the Hindustan Times reported.
“She is an extremely brave lady. We are proud of her as an anchor, but what happened today has left us in shock,”
“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,” a senior editor said.
Kaur had married Harsad Kawade a year ago.
The editor said the staffers had come to know that her husband was dead while she was reading the news.
“But we did not tell her. We did not have the courage,” the editor explained.
