Senior IPS officer Geetha Johri, a member of the Supreme Court appointed Special Investigation Team investigating cases related to the Godhra riots, was injured when her car overturned near Limbdi town in Surendranagar district, police said on Sunday.

Johri, who currently holds the post of Rajkot Police Commissioner, was returning from Ahmedabad when her car overturned after hitting a cow on the National Highway eight late last night, they said.

Her daughter accompanied Johri when the incident occurred, police said.

The vehicle hit the animal and overturned, injuring Johri and her driver, while her daughter was safe, they said.

Johri and the driver were taken to a hospital in Rajkot where they were released after primary treatment, police said.

Johri who had sustained injuries on the head also underwent an MRI, which turned out to be normal, they added.

Recently, Johri had offered to quit from the SIT on account of 'personal allegation' made against her in connection with Sohrabuddin fake encounter case.
