Asokwa District Court (one) presided over by his Worship Mr Peter Oppong Boahen has remanded the three suspected Bantama gang rapists into police custody.

They are to reappear in court tomorrow December 20th for a definite hearing.

Sources say that the suspects are juvenile therefore their parents or guardians must be present in court as required by the law hence the court adjourned the case to tomorrow.

The accused persons whose pleas were not taken will be in police until tomorrow to enable the prosecution to conduct more thorough investigations.

Seven school boys subjected a teenage girl to a painful sexual ordeal.

The boys, were seen in a video footage gang-raping the teenager; and according to sources, the crime was perpetrated at Bantama in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.
