New Delhi, Dec 10 (IANS) India is waiting to learn more details about the death of an Indian nurse in Britain who fell prey to a hoax call from Australian radio jockeys about the Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy.

"We don't know enough about it (the case) it is extremely sad. Let's wait to see what has happened and why it has happened. In human terms I can say it is extremely sad," External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said Monday about the death of Jacintha Saldanha.

Saldanha, 46, a mother of two, was found unconscious last Friday in the quarters of the King Edward VII Hospital in central London where she was working as a senior nurse. She was pronounced dead when rushed to the hospital.

Two radio jockeys from Sydney radio station had called up the hospital Dec 4. Jacintha picked up the call in the absence of the receptionist at that time (5.30 a.m.) and transferred it to another duty nurse who briefed them on the health condition of the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton), who was admitted to the hospital Dec 3 after she complained of acute morning sickness.

News about the hoax call shocked the royal family and caused outrage the world over, especially in the British media.
