Two boys, 17, remanded in connection with alleged rape of 15-year-old girl

Limassol district court on Friday remanded in custody for four days two male students, aged 17, in connection with the alleged rape and sexual abuse of a 15-year-old girl last year in the coastal city.

A third young man, aged 19, is already in custody in connection with the case.

The two teenagers said in their statements to police in the presence of their parents that the girl is lying and that it was all consensual.

The 15-yer-old said she was drugged and sexually abused by all three who were also video-taping the atrocious actions using their mobile phones.
