Shah Rukh Kahn’s son Aryan Khan’s friend Arbaaz Merchant, was restricted to meet his best friend. Arbaaz was also accused of the drug case and it was one of the conditions of his bail. Now according to the reports, he is filing an application in court, requesting to waive off this stipulation. This condition is added to the bail application to prevent the accused from interacting with one another.
Arbaaz’s father Aslam Merchant, while speaking to ETimes, said, “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.”
On October 2, Aryan Khan and Arbaaz Merchant were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau while entering a cruise ship. On Arbaaz, the NCB reportedly discovered drugs. After nearly a month in jail, both Aryan and Arbaaz were released on restricted bond.
Arbaaz and Aryan have been close friends for a long time and have been frequently seen posting photos and videos together on social media. When the NCB detained them in early October, they were even on a cruise ship together.
Arbaaz’s lawyer is likely to present an application to the court today asking authorization for their meetings. The NCB asks for such bail terms so that the accused do not interact with one another and can’t influence the agency’s ongoing investigation.
