Ms Burke said she was giving Mrs Halappanavar information because she was puzzled.
“She had mentioned the Hindu faith and that in India a termination would be possible,” Ms Burke said.

“I was trying to be as broad and explanatory as I could. It was nothing to do with medical care at all,” she added.
