Sapna Chaudhary is a famous artist and the news of the death of such an artist in an accident would have made headlines, but we could not find any such news in the google search.
The claim in the viral post quoted a video of India News. The video mentions the death of artist Sapna in a road accident in Sirsa.

According to the information given with the bulletin, ‘Music artist Sapna was killed in a road accident in Sirsa and five other artists were also injured in this accident.’

According to the report, ‘The members of the dance group were returning to Sirsa after celebrating someone’s birthday in Fatehabad. They met with an accident when a cow came in front of their car. One of the girls of the team was killed in the accident, while the other four were seriously injured. Due to the high speed of the car, the car overturned and reached the fields on the other side of the road. 30-year-old Sapna died in the accident. The matter was reported to the local police station. After recording the statements of the relatives of the deceased, the police handed over the dead body to the relatives after conducting postmortem. The incident happened around 12 pm on Sunday night.
Another artist named Sapna met with an accident. The old news of a death is going viral as the death of Sapna Chaudhary. We spoke to Sapna Chaudhary’s personal assistant Charan Sehrawat regarding this matter. He told, “Sapna Chaudhary is absolutely fine and she is currently shooting in Chandigarh. She had not met with an accident. The news that is going viral is related to the death of another artist named Sapna.”
