Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was informed about the death of his uncle and former YS Minister Vivekananda Reddy long before the news broke, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) told a court on Friday. .

“Since Avinash Reddy was active before and after the commission of the murder, his role in reporting the death of YS Vivekananda Reddy to YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will be investigated,” the investigative agency told the court.
