Durban - The case against a 16-year-old boy accused of being part of a gang that hijacked and threw a KwaZulu-Natal teacher off a bridge was on Thursday postponed in the Durban Magistrate's Court for further investigation.

The matter was to return to court on February 1, also for an identity parade to take place.

The boy was accused of robbing Kavisha Seevnarian before throwing her off the Mkomazi River Bridge in November last year.

She survived the 60m plunge and suffered injuries that included a smashed spine and fractured pelvis.

Wandile Nsibande and Sibusiso Dlamini were sentenced in November last year after they pleaded guilty to charges of robbery with aggravating circumstances and kidnapping.

Nsibande was given 25 years and Dlamini 40 years behind bars.
