The 4-year-old was left unconscious after being assaulted, allegedly by her mother and her partner last month.

The couple is due back in court in April on charges of attempted murder.

The video of the assault enraged the Greater Durban community, with people calling for justice for the little girl.

Police confirmed earlier in the month that the mother's boyfriend requested to have his bail revoked out of fear for his own safety.
