The judge asked the Kadapa MP to appear before the investigating officers of the CBI regularly till April 25 and cooperate with them. He also asked the CBI to record the entire process of interrogation of Avinash Reddy and submit in writing all the questions to be posed to him during the interrogation.

The judge posted the case to April 25 for further hearing on his anticipatory bail petition.

The CBI told the court that it would question the MP from along with his father YS Bhaskar Reddy who was arrested on Sunday and his close aide Gajjala Uday Kumar Reddy, who was arrested last week in the same case.
