Justice Soumitra Sen's impeachment motion: Was it correct to include Fali S.Nariman in the Inquiry Committee?

It has now been reported that the Rajya Sabha Chairman has constituted a three-member committee to investigate the grounds on which the removal of Justice Soumitra Sen of the Calcutta High Court is prayed for. The three members are Justice D.K. Jain of the Supreme Court, Justice T.S. Thakur, Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, and Fali S. Nariman, senior advocate, Supreme Court. But in view of what Fali S.Nariman has reportedly said about Justice Sen's impeachment recommendation of the Chief Justice of India, should he not have recused himself from the committee?
