10 boys in Durban court for school gang-rape

Ten boys are expected to appear in the Durban Regional Court on Tuesday for the alleged gang-rape of a 15-year-old girl at a school in Lamontville.

Police are investigating after a video of the incident went viral on social media.

The video was allegedly taken by one of the boys involved, and came to the attention of police after a teacher saw the video and reported it.

Fifteen boys have been arrested, with five of them appearing in the Durban Magistrate’s court last Wednesday.

 The other 10, who are below the age of consent, were released into the custody of their parents.

Police spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane confirmed that a case of rape had been opened in Lamontville two weeks ago.

“It is alleged that a 15-year-old female was raped by the suspects in the school premises. Ten suspects aged between 15 and 21 were arrested and charged for rape,” he said.

“They appeared in the Durban Regional Court on February 1, 2016 and the case was remanded to February 9, 2016,” he added.
