Indian nurse`s suicide: Australian RJs not to be charged
London: The two Australian radio presenters whose prank call was blamed for the suicide of Indian-origin nurse Jacintha Saldanha are unlikely to face charges, a media report said Friday.
Saldanha, 46, was found hanging days after being tricked. She put the Australians` prank call through to pregnant Duchess Kate`s hospital room where she was being treated for morning sickness.
Police in Sydney Thursday said that no request has been received from Scotland Yard to interview the radio pranksters -- Mel Greig, 30, and Michael Christian, 25.
"Nor do we expect there to be any requests," The Sun quoted Sydney police chief Nick Kaldas as saying.
British police submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service last week, but their Australian counterparts believe it would be difficult to find a charge that could be laid against the 2Day FM hosts.
Greig and Christian rang London`s King Edward VII Hospital pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. Saldanha was found dead three days later.
