The doomsday cult leader on trial for last year's fatal gas attack on the Tokyo subway was ordered Monday to pay $939,000 to the parents of a cult member beaten to death during religious training. The parents of 25-year-old Teruyuki Mashima brought the suit against Aum Supreme Truth leader Shoko Asahara for the 1988 beating, apparently by cult followers, a Tokyo District Court official said.
