Ensure 'due process' in Buddhi case, India tells US

“It is seen that Buddhi has been tried and convicted through a US court process. The matter is presently sub judice, and we have requested the US government to ensure that due process is followed,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said here.

Buddhi, who was pursuing a Ph.D in the Purdue University, Indiana, was sentenced by a US court to 57 months’ imprisonment on December 11 for sending threatening emails to several US leaders, including Bush.  

He is presently under detention in the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago.
Parents of Buddhi have protested against their son’s trial as a “total miscarriage of justice”.
