Witnesses said the victim was raped when she went to defecate inside a bush within the school during the break period.
She was reportedly waylaid by the three boys who took turns to have s3x with her.
It was bloodstained on the uniform of the girl when she walked back to the classroom that gave the boys away.
Another source said one of the suspects demanded s3x from the victim but she turned him down.
The suspect was said to have invited his two friends to join him in raping her in an isolated place.
Police sources said the suspects have been arrested and detained at Juvenile Children Correctional Centre.
