Ten high school pupils were taken in for questioning after a teenage girl was found dead in Soweto, Gauteng police told News24 on Tuesday.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela told the media that the pupils were taken in to help police with the investigation and will be sent home after the questioning. Makhubela also mentioned that the SAPS just want to know if they knew anyone or anything related to the incident.

The body of 15-year-old Lungile Kubeka was found in a yard on Monday morning. Police believe she may have been raped and strangled, as there were no open wounds on her body.

Angry residents, who alleged that Kubeka's boyfriend was behind the attack, went to the Sebetsa O Thole Moputso Secondary School in Dobsonville and demanded they hand themselves over to police.

Makhubela said police took in the 10 pupils including the boyfriend, his friends, and some of Kubeka's friends.

None were arrested.
