Purdue University student and IIT alumnus Vikram Subbarao Buddhi, who recently received a 57-month prison sentence for threatening the U.S. President, Vice President, Defense Secretary and their families, allegedly threatened his father Kota Subbarao Buddhi with a knife in the U.S.
Vikram’s father Kota Subbarao Buddhi was in the U.S. at the time, presumably to help Vikram with his legal problems.
That’s just one of the interesting incidents we uncovered in an examination of court documents related to Vikram Buddhi’s case.
911 Call Made
According to the West Lafayette Police Department, Vikram Buddhi’s father Kota Subbarao Buddhi called 911 (an emergency crisis assistance number in the U.S.) on June 6, 2007 to allegedly complain that his son had threatened him with a knife.
Court filings in the Vikram Buddhi case disclose that a police officer was dispatched to the scene of the 911 emergency call.
The police officer’s report allegedly confirmed the 911 recording that Buddhi threatened his father Kota Subbarao Buddhi with a knife.
Vikram Buddhi denied allegations that he threatened his father Kota Subbarao Buddhi.
But Vikram Buddhi’s denial were not believed by U.S. Magistrate Rodovich, who found Vikram had violated the terms of his release and revoked his bond on June 21, 2007 despite Vikram’s father Kota Subbarao Buddhi claiming at the bond revocation hearing that it was all just a misunderstanding with the police.

By the way, Vikram Buddhi has filed an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on December 11, 2009 against his sentence by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District Court of Indiana.
