Well, the Police cannot send Summons to a Person not named in the FIR without doing investigation first which becomes possible after Registration of FIR either by the Police on own or on the orders of a JMFC.

A person not named in the FIR or a person though named in the FIR but has not been charge-sheeted can be summoned under Section 319 Cr.P.C. provided from the evidence it appears that such person can be tried along with the accused already facing trial.
