Indian-origin nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who was found hanging at her official accommodation at a London hospital recently, had apparently left three suicide notes.

One of these notes criticised the hospital staff, details accessed by Headlines Today revealed.

The 46-year-old senior nurse was on December 7 found hanging from a wardrobe in her apartment on the premises of King Edward VII Hospital, where she worked.

She had allegedly committed suicide after a prank call from two Australian radio presenters, who pretended to be the Queen and Prince Charles enquiring about the condition of Kate, who is pregnant and was undergoing treatment in the hospital for morning sickness.

One of the suicide notes has been addressed to the hospital management that also criticises some staffers. Another note talks about the prank call made by the Australian presenters.

In the other suicide note Saldanha has requested for her funeral.

While two notes lied at the spot, another one was later found from Saldanha’s belongings. Her family has been given typed copies of the three handwritten notes by the police.

On Thursday, findings of the autopsy on her body were revealed to the Westminster coroner at the formal opening of the inquest. It said that the woman was found hanging in her apartment and there were injuries on her wrists.
