The father of one of two girls who were gang raped and killed in rural India has turned down thousands in compensation offered to him by the state government — an unusual refusal likely to focus attention on his demands for a federal investigation into the crime. Sohan Lal, a poor farm laborer in Uttar Pradesh who was offered 500,000 rupees or $8,500 by the state government, said, "I don't expect justice from the state government as state police officers shielded the suspects." Such government payments are common in India when poor families face high-profile calamities. Lal told reporters Saturday that he would accept no financial assistance until the Central Bureau of Investigation, India's FBI, takes over the case.
