NEW DELHI: A 16-year-old girl has alleged that her parents tried to coax her into changing her statement in court after taking money from two men accused of raping her in outer Delhi's Aman Vihar area, police said today.

The victim approached police on April 10 with help from her neighbours, following which a case was registered.

Her mother was arrested but her father is on the run.
