London: Key findings are expected to be presented at the Westminster Coroner's court for the first time in the Indian nurse suicide case. Jacintha Saldanha killed herself in December 2012, days after transferring a prank call to a hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated.
Saldanha had transferred a prank call from two DJs of an Australian radio station, believing they were the Queen and Prince of Wales, to a colleague who described in detail the condition of Kate during her hospital stay for severe pregnancy sickness. Later, she was found hanging in her nurses' quarters at King Edward VII's Hospital by a colleague and a security guard on December 7.
She was later laid to rest at her husband's hometown of Shirva in Udupi, Karnataka.
