The outpouring of grief was immense at Mangalore when the body of Jacintha Saldanha arrived here on Sunday.

Jacintha allegedly committed suicide after she inadvertently became part of a hoax by a radio station that revealed Prince William's wife Kate Middleton was pregnant. 

Jacintha's husband Bendict Barboza, son Junal and daughter Lisha, who arrived with the body, appeared calm and fought back tears. They requested the media not to ask them any questions as they wanted to spend time with their family members.

The family members said that they would speak to the media later. Other family members of Jacintha said that did not want to comment on the ongoing investigation into her death.
