"We questioned them about where they had circulated the videos. Three mobile phones used to record the crime were seized and sent to forensic science lab," a senior police officer said.
The five CCL boys have been previously administered bone density tests to confirm their age, and potency tests.

We will gather technical evidence, statements of the victim and her family members and circumstantial evidence and make a strong charge-sheet against the culprits," the officer said.
