Four students have been implicated in the alleged rape of a 20-year-old woman of Ba late last month.
The youngest student is 13-years-old while the oldest student is 17-years old.
The other two students are 14 and 16 years old respectively.
The students and two men allegedly raped the woman while she was returning home from a wedding reception.
The two men appeared in the Tavua Magistrates Court yesterday.
According to police – investigators are preparing separate files and will have them sent to the Officer in Charge of the Juvenile Bureau for a recommendation.
The woman reported the matter last weekend alleging the six men dragged her to a nearby bush and raped her.
Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro says such cases trigger a red alert response and those responsible will be brought to justice.
Naisoro says special taskforce teams have been set up throughout the divisions – intended to address such serious cases.
