New Delhi, Dec 16 (ANI): Parents of IIT alumnus Vikram Buddhi, who was awarded a nearly five-year jail term by a US court for posting hate messages against former President George W Bush, blamed the justice delivery system as unfair.

Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, Buddhi father B K Subba Rao said the trial was a "total miscarriage of justice."

"When they (jury, they are not expert in law) could not understand the instructions (given by judge) they put it in writing that whatever you (judge) have instructed us there are contradictions in the instructions. We do not understand the law. Please help us to understand the law. It is the duty of the judge to make jury understand it. Instead the judge replied there is no contradictions and continue your deliberations. That means the judge is commanding the jury, who is expressing helplessness in understanding the law.

It is a very serious matter. These reasons make the trial unfair," said Rao.

Buddhi, an engineering research scholar, was awarded a nearly five-year jail term by a US court for instigating the Iraqi's by Internet to kill former President W Bush.

The engineer was charged by the US secret service of having circulated emails, provoking Iraqi to murder Bush and bomb infrastructure in US. (ANI)
