A modeldependent amplitude analysis of the decay $B^0\rightarrow D(K^0_S\pi^+\pi^) K^{*0}$ is performed using protonproton collision data corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3.0fb$^{1}$, recorded at $\sqrt{s}=7$ and $8 TeV$ by the LHCb experiment. The CP violation observables $x_{\pm}$ and $y_{\pm}$, sensitive to the CKM angle $\gamma$, are measured to be \begin{eqnarray*} x_ &=& 0.15 \pm 0.14 \pm 0.03 \pm 0.01, y_ &=& 0.25 \pm 0.15 \pm 0.06 \pm 0.01, x_+ &=& 0.05 \pm 0.24 \pm 0.04 \pm 0.01, y_+ &=& 0.65^{+0.24}_{0.23} \pm 0.08 \pm 0.01, \end{eqnarray*} where the first uncertainties are statistical, the second systematic and the third arise from the uncertainty on the $D\rightarrow K^0_S \pi^+\pi^$ amplitude model. These are the most precise measurements of these observables. They correspond to $\gamma=(80^{+21}_{22})^{\circ}$ and $r_{B^0}=0.39\pm0.13$, where $r_{B^0}$ is the magnitude of the ratio of the suppressed and favoured $B^0\rightarrow D K^+ \pi^$ decay amplitudes, in a $K\pi$ mass region of $\pm50 MeV$ around the $K^*(892)^0$ mass and for an absolute value of the cosine of the $K^{*0}$ decay angle larger than $0.4$.

Invariant mass distribution for $ B ^0 \rightarrow D K ^{*0} $ long and downstream candidates. The fit result, including signal and background components, is superimposed (solid blue). The points are data, and the different fit components are given in the legend. The two vertical lines represent the signal region in which the $ C P$ fit is performed.

Only the $\delta_{ B ^0 }$ solution corresponding to $0<\gamma <180 ^{\circ} $ is highlighted; the other maximum is due to the $(\delta_{ B ^0 } ,\gamma )\rightarrow (\delta_{ B ^0 } +\pi,\gamma +\pi)$ ambiguity.
