British Indian MP Keith Vaz has slammed the decision of an Australian radio station to reward a presenter linked with the prank call that resulted in the death of an India-born nurse here last year.
The family of the Indian origin nurse, who killed herself days after a prank call, has slammed the radio station for giving one of the DJs a major award.
Aussie DJ Michael Christian, who made a hoax call to nurse Jacintha Saldanah who was found dead three days later, has been awarded a top prize in an internal competition by Australia’s Today Network.
The family of the Indian-origin nurse, Jacintha Saldanha, is struggling to come to terms with the fact that the DJs will not be prosecuted.
The body of Indian-origin nurse Jacintha Saldanha will be buried at Shirva town in coastal Karnataka on Monday.
Australia`s media watchdog launched a probe into the broadcast of a prank call by a Sydney-based radio station to a UK hospital treating pregnant Princess Kate.
The nurse`s husband, Benedict Barboza, desperately tried to track her down in the hours before her suspected suicide.
Family members of Indian nurse Jacintha Saldhana, who fell prey to a hoax call from Australian radio jockeys about the Duchess of Cambridge`s pregnancy, are shocked about her death in London.
The Sydney radio presenters, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, behind the prank call are said to be in hiding and in a "fragile" state, undergoing intensive psychological counselling.
