An Indian-origin nurse who was found dead after being duped by a prank call from two Australian radio hosts, had left a note for her family, which believes there are “unexplained” circumstances behind her death.
“What the family needs are the full facts. There are unexplained circumstances. The family want to know everything,” Labour MP Keith Vaz has said.
“The hospital needs to be more proactive, a full inquiry is needed and the family needs to be included in that,” he said, without revealing the content of the note.
Jacintha Saldanha, 46, died after a suspected suicide last Friday after she was fooled by the radio hosts — Mel Greig and Michael Christian — who made a hoax call to the King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone, central London. She was the senior nurse on duty when the phone call was made. Although the Marylebone hospital authorities have said they will conduct internal probe into the matter, the family says this is not enough, and demands answers from them over the circumstances that led to her death.
Vaz, who is representing the family, on Tuesday met the hospital chairman Lord Glenarthur to demand a full probe into her death.PTI
