The body of Jacintha Saldana, Indian-origin nurse will be brought back today, firstly arrive in Mumbai by a Jet Airways flight from London.
Jacintha’s body will be flown to Mangalore on December 16 for funeral to be held at Surve near Udupi, sources said.
46-year-old Jacintha had committed suicide in London after being duped by a prank call by two Australian RJs to the King Edward VII hospital where a pregnant Princess Kate Middleton was being treated for severe morning sickness.
After three days of prank call, Saldanha was found dead in her room, hanging with a scarf. Three emotional suicide notes had been left behind by her.
One revealed her criticism over her senior colleagues’ attitude towards her after the call was revealed to be a hoax, while other speaks of the prank call by two Australian radio DJs into believing they were royalty. Third one led to her funeral arrangements as she wanted.
A probe has been calling against Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian who made a prank call to the hospital seeking to get information on the Kate’s condition. Reports are also said that they were pretending themselves, the Queen and Prince Charles.
