The boys included two form one students in SHS and one form three student in JHS.
The three who have been remanded were among seven boys who allegedly gang-raped a teenage girl at Bantama.
The seven suspects supposedly recorded the obscene act which lasted five minutes on video and leaked it afterwards.
In the video, the teenage girl is seen pinned to a mattress by one of her abusers while his accomplices take turns to defile her.
The victim, who was resisting her attackers throughout the ordeal, was restrained from escaping by her abusers who appeared to be having fun with the torture.
The remaining four who absconded are still being searched for by the police.
