Who Is Sunil Kumar Yadav
The Krishnayya family of Mothunuthalapalle in the Pulivendula Mandal now reside in Bhakarapuram. While Krishnayya is a shareholder in a local auto finance company, while his son Sunil Kumar Yadav works in the Sand Reaches. During this period, Sunil befriended Umashankar Reddy, who supervised the farms belonging to YS Vivekananda Reddy in Ravulakolanu village at the Tandur mandal in the distrcit. Through him, the whole of Sunil's family became close to YS Viveka.
In the wake of this, the SIT first questioned Sunil, his parents, and brother Kiran Kumar several times in the YS Viveka murder case. The CBI kept Sunil in custody at their office in Delhi for a month. Sunil had filed a petition in the High Court alleging that the CBI was harassing him and his family members for questioning. The CBI has filed a counter-petition in this regard as well stating their reasons for questioning him.
Meanwhile, Sunil Kumar Yadav has been staying in Goa since the petition was filed in the High Court. He was arrested by the CBI, who identified him as a key suspect and for not cooperating with the investigation.
