The High Court today asked a assembly committee not to take any coercive steps against two bureaucrats, who along with Anshu Prakash, were issued notice by the panel.

Justice said that the two officers -- former of Cooperative Societies (RCS) J B Singh and serving and CEO of the Urban Shelter Improvement Board Shurbir Singh - could appear in person or through their lawyers before the Privilege Committee, whose meeting was scheduled today.

Vivek Chib, appearing for the two bureaucrats, said they sought quashing of the notice by and challenged the jurisdiction of Question and Reference (Q and R) Committee, which had made a complaint against them.
