THE case against a 16-year-old boy accused of hijacking a woman and pushing her over a bridge was yesterday postponed by the Durban magistrate's court.

The matter would be heard again on December 9 to give police more time to investigate.

The teenager is also accused of robbing Kavisha Seevnarian before pushing her off the Mkomazi River Bridge on November 13.

She survived the 60-metre plunge and is recuperating in hospital.

Seevnarian suffered a fractured spine and pelvis.

The teen's accomplices, Wandile Nsibande and Sibusiso Dlamini, were sentenced last week after they pleaded guilty to charges of kidnapping and robbery.

Nsibande was sentenced to 25 years while Dlamini was given 40 years.

Police are still looking for a fourth suspect.

The boy's relatives yesterday hurled insults at journalists, saying they did not understand why a case involving "a small boy" would attract so many reporters. - Sapa
