Savita Halappanavar's husband Praveen has said that the Irish authorities have not been in touch with him and he is worried about the sort inquiry that will be established into her death, said The Irish Times.

Savita died on October 28 after being denied an abortion at a hospital in Ireland.

The Irish health authorities had said on Friday that an inquiry team would be constituted to probe Savita's death. But the team members are yet to be named.

According to reports, Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny has said he would not take a rushed decision on abortion in the wake of widespread protests.

"I'm not going to be rushed into the situation by force of numbers on any side. This is something which needs to be treated rationally and openly and truthfully, and that's what will happen," Kenny said.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Friday summoned Irish Ambassador Feilim McLaughlin to convey India's concern over this case.

During the meeting, Madhusudan Ganapathi, Secretary (West) in the MEA, who summoned the Irish Ambassador, said India was concerned over Savita's death and also informed McLaughlin about the uproar in the society that has started over the issue.

The Irish Ambassador reportedly assured full cooperation.
