KYOTO (Kyodo) Three Kyoto University seniors suspected of gang-raping two female students have denied that they forced the women to drink alcohol beforehand and are also claiming the sex was consensual, a lawyer for the suspects said Friday.

Lawyer Kazuyuki Hori said he met the three suspects, Jumpei Shirai, 22, Ryo Ikeguchi, 23, and Masahiro Kido, 22, at a Kyoto police station Thursday night.
