New Delhi, Nov 18 (TIWN) President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday administered the oath of office of the Chief Justice of India to Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde.

Chief Justice Bobde was also part of a nine-judge bench headed by the then Chief Justice JS Khehar which, in a unanimously judgement in August 2017, held that the Right to Privacy was a constitutionally protected fundamental right in India.  He also chaired a three-member in-house panel which gave a clean chit to his predecessor, Chief Justice Gogoi, on a sexual harassment complaint against him by a former court staffer. The committee also included Justices Indira Banerjee and Indu Malhotra.  Chief Justice Bobde belongs to a family of lawyers from Maharashtra; he is the son of eminent senior advocate Arvind Shriniwas Bobde.  Chief Justice Bobde has been chosen following the rule of seniority and his name was recommended by Justice Gogoi in a letter to the Centre.
