Ms Johri, who is currently posted as Police Commissioner of Rajkot city, has been asked to appear before the probe agency by Aug 10.

Based on the evidence collected by the investigating officer and her team in the fake encounter of Sohrabuddin Sheikh and killing of his wife Kausarbi three IPS officers, namely DG Vanzara, Rajkumar Pandian and Dinesh MN, were arrested.
