The Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) is making progress in the murder case of Y. S. Vivekananda Reddy, brother of former Chief Minister of combined Andhra Pradesh Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy. The progress is being made at regular intervals. Two accused were arrested by the officials already.

As another big development in the case, the CBI sleuths are likely to arrest Erra Gangireddy in this case. He is also expected to be produced before the Pulivendula Court on Thursday.

The other day, Gangireddy was reportedly shifted to Kadapa from Pulivendula by the CBI Officials for questioning him. After grilling the accused till the evening, he was shifted to Kadapa Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS). A few medical tests were reportedly performed on him. Media reports say that Gangireddy underwent Corona tests and other required medical tests on Wednesday and the reports of the tests are awaited.

It is known that the CBI Officials have reconstructed the crime scene at YS Vivekananda Reddy's residence in Pulivendula on Wednesday. It is said that the officials have gathered crucial information on how the accused barged into the house on the day of the attack. Besides this, information from a few family members including Suneetha Reddy, the daughter of YS Vivekananda Reddy on the case.

Gangireddy is often dubbed as one of the accused in the case. He is said to be the main follower of YS Viveka and he was present with Viveka before the crime. Viveka returned home after dropping Gangireddy at his home. CBI officials suspect Gangireddy's role in the attack.

The Special Investigation Team(SIT) that had investigated the case before the CBI took over the case had earlier arrested Gangireddy in connection with the case and he was sent to jail for three months by the court. He was accused of removing the crucial evidence at YS Vivekananda Reddy and on the same grounds, he was arrested and shifted to jail. However, he was released on bail.

Gangireddy might be the third one to get arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) officials in the case. Earlier, Sunil Yadav and Umashankar Reddy were arrested in this regard.
