Police in the central Quang Tri Province have arrested six schoolboys for allegedly gang-raping a schoolgirl.

Trieu Phong District police said the boys are from two high schools and the girl is in 10th grade at Nguyen Huu Than High School.

None of them has been identified because they are all minors.

Authorities said the boys had planned the heinous act and so plied the girl with alcohol and got her drunk.

The police swung into action after district authorities received a complaint on Monday from the victim’s family saying the girl’s body bore signs of abuse after she attended a birthday party last Sunday with the six boys.

At around 9 p.m. that day the family heard a noise outside their house and ran out to find the victim lying unconscious on the ground and no one else in the vicinity.

Her family rushed her to hospital with scratches on her neck and face and low blood pressure.

Doctors confirmed she had been sexually abused. She was discharged on Monday night after recovering from injuries.

Police said three other schoolboys and another young man from the province are also under investigation for the rape, but they are not put under custody.
