A post-mortem is due to take place on Tuesday (December 11) on the nurse who was found dead after falling victim to a prank phone call made by Australian DJs to the London hospital treating the Duchess of Cambridge. Jacintha Saldanha was found dead on Friday (December 7) at nurses' accommodation near the hospital, three days after she answered through the hoax call. Saldanha will be laid to rest in Shirva in India after the investigation into her death is complete. The Australian radio station behind the prank will donate its advertising revenue until the end of the year to the fund Southern Cross Austereo (SCA), parent company of Sydney radio station 2Day FM, said it would donate all advertising revenue, with a minimum contribution of A$500,000 ($525,000). The company has suspended the Sydney-based announcers, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, scrapped their "Hot 30" program and suspended advertising on the station in the wake of Saldanha's death. Southern Cross said it would resume advertising on its station from Thursday (December 13).
