The State has provisionally withdrawn the case against a 15-year-old boy accused of killing his classmate in Sebokeng.
The teenager made a brief appearance in the Sebokeng Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
He was accused of stabbing his classmate with a pair of scissors on Monday at the Thuto – Tiro Comprehensive School.
The boy’s case was heard in camera because he’s a minor.
The police’s Fikile Funda said: “The prosecutor provisionally withdrew the case pending the finalisation of the investigation. We are going to obtain all outstanding investigations and statements and when the docket is ready, it will be placed in court again. The suspect will then appear before the same court to answer charges of murder.”
