Earlier, talks between Punjab government representatives and the family of the girl failed. The kin have refused to perform last rites of the girl and her body is kept in a mortuary.

"I want justice. I want justice for my daughter. FIR should be registered against those whom the bus belonged to," victim's father told reporters here.

When asked whether he wanted registration of FIR against Sukhbir Badal, he said, "FIR can be lodged against him (Sukhbir) after all he is a human being."

"Is there nobody in the world who can lodge FIR against him (Sukhbir)," he questioned. "The government says if anybody commits crime, he should be punished whether he is a President or anybody else," he said.



Asked whether he accepted the government's offer of Rs 20 lakh compensation and government job, he said, "Neither I want money nor government job. I only want justice."

Meanwhile, the family of the teenaged girl has refused to cremate her pending compensation and cancellation of the transport firm's permit even as the incident triggered protests by Opposition parties.

Opposition Congress and AAP joined the agitating family and activists staging a protest in front of the Moga civil hospital where the injured mother of the deceased, who was also molested and shoved out of the vehicle, is undergoing treatment.

Sukhdev Singh, father of the victim, said they would not perform the final rites of the girl till their demands like Rs 50 lakh compensation, employment to one member of the family, free treatment for her mother and cancellation of route permits of Orbit Aviation, on whose bus the incident took place two days back, are accepted.



DIG of Ferozepur Range Amar Singh Chahal told reporters he also met the family members to persuade them to perform the last rites but they did not relent.

In a fresh twist to the incident, TV channels showed a letter purported to be carrying the thumb impression of the deceased's father endorsing the action taken by the police so far. Sukhdev Singh told TV channels he had put the thumb impression without being explained the contents of the document.
