Mangaluru: A member of the five-judge constitutional bench of the Supreme Court, that pronounced the verdict on the decades-old Ram-Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title dispute, hails from the Dakshina Kannada district.

The son of Fakir Saheb, Justice S A Nazeer was born in Moodbidri in 1958. After completing his B.Com in Mahaveera College, Moodbidri, he pursued a law degree in the renowned SDM Law College, Kodialbail, Mangaluru.

In 1983, Nazeer enrolled as an advocate and practiced at the Karnataka High Court in Bengaluru. He was appointed as an Additional Judge of the Karnataka High Court in May 2003 and as a Permanent Judge in 2004.

Nazeer was elevated to the Supreme Court of India in February 2017. He is the third judge to have become a Supreme Court judge without first becoming the Chief Justice of a High Court.

In 2017, Nazeer was the only Muslim judge in a multi-faith bench which heard the controversial Triple Talaq case.

The other judges on the bench that delivered the historic verdict are CJI Ranjan Gogoi, Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde, Justice DY Chadrachud and Justice Ashok Bhushan.
