Indian nurse's family hasn't got reply to questions

London, January 13:

The family of Indian-origin nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who was found hanging after taking a hoax phone call about the Duchess of Cambridge, said they are yet to receive answers from her hospital to 40 questions over her death.

The Telegraph said Saldanha's widower and her two children were also waiting to hear from radio show bosses in Australia after the nurse was duped by two radio presenters who impersonated Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles to ask questions about Kate who was being treated for morning sickness.

The 46-year-old nurse was found dead in her quarters three days after she transferred the call from 2Day FM hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian to a colleague at London's King Edward VII's Hospital who then described Kate's condition in detail.

Saldanha left two notes in her room and had marks on her wrist when her body was discovered, a court in London heard.

The 40 questions prepared by her family on Saldanha's death will only be answered following an internal inquiry led by hospital chairman Lord Glenarthur, the daily said.

Indian-origin Labour MP Keith Vaz, who has supported the family since the death, said he was "disappointed that it will take such a long time for the results to be made available to the family".

"Despite the fact that the family have sent a list of 40 questions to the hospital they still seem unwilling to answer them," Vaz said.

The Australian radio station's parent company, Southern Cross Austereo, also received a list of questions from Saldanha's family.

In a letter to Vaz, hospital chief executive John Lofthouse said "no disciplinary action was being contemplated" against Saldanha.

"We regarded her as the victim of a cruel hoax," he was quoted as saying.
