A group of advocates today moved the Supreme Court challenging the inclusion of five civil society members in a committee to draft the Lokpal Bill.

Advocate M L Sharma and others have moved the court contending that inclusion of five civil society members in the committee, which also has five ministers, is constitutionally flawed as a parliamentary committee must comprise only members of parliament and no one else.

It also assailed the inclusion of the father-son duo--Shanti and Prashant Bhushan.
