Two new men were arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for insulting social media statements about judges and the judiciary. In this case, the agency has detained five people so far.

The agency detained accused Pattapu Aadarsh and Lavanuru Samba Siva Reddy on Saturday. "To investigate the larger conspiracy, the CBI has also examined certain persons, including MP Nandigam Suresh and former MLA Amanchi Krishna Mohan, not mentioned in the First Information Report (FIR)," said a CBI official.

Following an order from the Andhra Pradesh High Court, the agency took the investigation on November 11, 2020, after filing an FIR against 16 accused and other unknown persons. They were accused of purposely targeting select Supreme Court and Andhra Pradesh High Court justices through media interviews, abusive comments, and threats on social media sites.
