Benedict Barboza Says Wife Jacintha Saldanha Will RIP in India

Jacintha Saldanha, the King Edward VII's Hospital nurse who was found dead after revealing private information about Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton to Australian DJ pranksters Mel Greig and Michael Christian — thinking they were Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh — is being mourned by her shocked family, reports the Herald Sun.    

The grieving includes a Facebook page that Saldanha's 14-year-old daughter started as an online memorial. "I miss you, I loveeee you," she wrote. 

Forty-nine-year-old accountant Benedict Barboza, Saldanha's widower, said the "committed Christian" will rest in peace in India. "I am devastated with the tragic loss of my beloved wife Jacintha in tragic circumstances [...] she will be laid to rest in Shirva, India," he wrote on Facebook according to the Herald Sun

Meanwhile, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, the Australian DJs who pulled the unfortunate and fatal prank, are reportedly "flattened" and "very fragile" because of the "avalanche of hate [and cyber bulling] directed at them on social media," said Southern Cross Austereo bosses from Sydney.
