Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde is currently the 47th Chief Justice of India and has heard several key cases like 5-judge Constitution bench in the politically sensitive Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute case.
Hailing from a family of lawyers from Maharashtra, he was part of a nine-judge Bench of the Supreme Court which in August 2017 declared the right to privacy as a fundamental right of an individual.
Nagpur-born Justice Bobde studied law from Nagpur University and became a Bombay high court judge in March 2000, where he served for over 12 years till his elevation as the chief justice of Madhya Pradesh high court in October 2012. He was later selected to be a Supreme Court judge in April 2013. Following CJI Gogoi’s retirement on November 17, Justice Bobde became the CJI and is due to retire in April 2021.
This is how netizens reacted to the CJI Bobde’s love for superbikes

Some also raised concerns about him not wearing helmet and mask.
@barandbench @SCofIndia, doesn’t the CJI know that he is equally (if not more) susceptible to Covid-19?
