Aryan Khan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant to request court to allow them to meet – Exclusive – Times of India

Aryan Khan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant, who was a co-accused in the drugs case, was prohibited from meeting his best friend as part of their bail condition. The youngster will now be filing an application in court, requesting to waive off this stipulation. This condition is incorporated into the bail application to forbid the accused persons from interacting with each other.

Arbaaz’s father Aslam Merchant, while speaking exclusively to ETimes, revealed, “My son is really missing meeting his closest friend Aryan and therefore an application is being drafted to be filed in court to request to waive off the condition of not meeting Aryan Khan. My son said he does not mind visiting the NCB officials every week, but he wants to meet and speak to his friend Aryan.”

Aryan Khan and Arbaaz Merchant were arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau on October 2 when they were boarding a cruise ship. The NCB allegedly found drugs on Arbaaz. Both Aryan and Arbaaz were released on conditional bail after nearly spending a month in jail.

Arbaaz and Aryan have been close friends for a long time and have been spotted together in photos and videos on social media quite often. They were even visiting the cruise ship together when the NCB had apprehended them in early October.

Arbaaz’s lawyer is expected to file this application seeking permission for their meetings to court today. The NCB requests such conditions in bail so that the accused persons do not interact and thereby be in a position to influence the agency’s ongoing investigation.
