The reporter didn’t name the three victims, Supreet Kaur realized her husband, Harsad Kawade, was among the dead from the details of the story.
Supreet Kaur was reading the morning news bulletin for India’s IBC24 channel in Chhattisgarh state on Saturday when a reporter called in a story about a fatal road crash.
“For a moment her voice trembled, but she collected herself and carried on reading the news till the bulletin got over 10 minutes later,” Ravikant Mittal, IBC24’s editor-in-chief, said Sunday.
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 accident, Mittal said.
