The Cyber Crime Investigation Wing of the Andhra Pradesh police reportedly launched a probe on Wednesday after Chief Minister N Chandrababu's Twitter account reflected some personal tweets posted by his son Nara Lokesh. 

The Chief Minister uses two Twitter accounts, with @AndhraPradeshCM being one, and @ncbn being the other.

On Wednesday, the 'Andhra Pradesh CM' account began displaying messages that were posted by TDP National General Secretary, Nara Lokesh.

Lokesh had earlier taken to Twitter, to talk about actor Balakrishna's new film 'Gautamiputra Satakarni'

Balakrishna also happens to be Lokesh's uncle, and a TDP MLA from Hindpur.

"Mesmerised by #Balayya mavayya's inspiring performance. Contribution of other artists in #GautamiPutraSatakarni deserves special mention,"(sic) Lokesh had said in a tweet.

'Mavayya' is the Telugu word for uncle.

However, the same tweet also reflected on the 'Andhra Pradesh CM' account, which led critics to ask if Lokesh was handling the chief minister's Twitter account.
 

The tweets were later removed from the 'Andhra Pradesh CM' account.
