Justice Bobde is also part of the five-judge constitution bench which just concluded hearing the Ram Janmabhoomi land dispute, the verdict for which is awaited and which is also one of the most crucial cases of the country. He, along with Justice Indira Banerjee and Indu Malhotra, had conducted the inquiry into an allegation of sexual harassment against CJI Gogoi.
