The consent of the coparceners are required by the Karta in this case. Otherwise such security given by the Karta is not valid if the security extends to the shares of the coparceners. But the Karta can offer his share as security against a loan taken by a non-member of HUF.

No, it cannot be, unless it can be shown that the transaction is in the interest and for benefit of HUF.
