The three accused in the gang-rape of a teenager in Surat were on Friday sent to judicial custody by a local court after the police did not press for their further remand.
Sahid Saiyed, Tariq Saiyed and Abu Bakr were produced before magistrate S V Pinto after their police custody ended today.
As the city crime branch, investigating the case, did not seek remand for the three, court sent them to judicial custody.
The trio were today booked in another case for having possession of 'obscene' material under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
Sahid and Tariq have undergone lie detection and narco-analysis tests at the Directorate of Forensic Science, Gandhinagar, but the same could not be conducted on Abu as his health did not permit it.
The statements of the two accused, whose narco test was conducted, is being verified following which further action will taken, police sources said.
The three allegedly raped a 17-year-old girl in a moving car in Surat on June 12 and recorded the incident on their mobile phones.
Their mobile phones are being examined by forensic experts.
