UK prank call: Husband wants nurse's body to be sent to India
Husband of Jacintha Saldanha has informed Indian mission in London that he would like the body to be sent to India.

New Delhi: Husband of Jacintha Saldanha, who allegedly committed suicide after becoming a victim of a hoax from Australian radio presenters, has informed Indian mission in London that he would like the body to be sent to India. "Husband of Jacintha has informed that he would like the body to be sent to India. Our Mission is in touch with the husband of Saldanha and is assisting in smooth completion of various formalities involved in it," official sources in the Ministry of External Affairs said.

Forty six-year-old Jacintha, a mother of two, was found unconscious last Friday in the quarters of the King Edward VII Hospital in central London where she was working as a senior nurse. She was pronounced dead when rushed to the hospital.

Jacintha had answered the hoax call at 5.30 am on December 5, and was helping out on the reception at the time of the prank call. Giggling DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian were pretending to be the British Queen and Prince Charles and asked her if they could be put through to Kate. Then she connected them to another nurse who gave out details of the condition of 30-year-old Kate who was suffering from acute morning sickness at the London hospital. The exact cause of the death remained unclear.
