No Drugs-Related WhatsApp Chats, Says Aryan Khan’s Co-Accused Arbaaz’s Dad

Mumbai: Lawyer Aslam Merchant has claimed that the allegations being made against his son Arbaaz and Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan are ‘baseless’ and that they are ‘innocent’.

Breaking his silence on the arrest of the star kids following Narcotics Control Bureau’s (NCB) raids on a rave party aboard a cruise ship off Mumbai, Aslam told Times Now: “These are all baseless allegations, but it is under investigation. It is very premature to state anything at this point in time. The NCB has been very cooperative and very nice to the kids. I being a lawyer, have faith in the judiciary. The truth will prevail and they will come out scot-free. They are innocent.”

Asked about drugs allegedly found on Arbaaz, Aslam said, “Whatever was found, was found inside the ship, not outside. They didn’t even enter the ship. They were guests.”

The NCB submitted before a court on Monday that it had discovered ‘shocking and incriminating’ material in WhatsApp chats of Aryan and two others.

“There are absolutely no WhatsApp chats related to drugs. They were not even prepared. It was just a last-minute discussion of going to the ship. They were invitees. They just decided out of the blue. He had breakfast with me and was supposed to have dinner with me,” Aslam said.

After granting a one-day custody of Aryan, Arbaaz and Munmun Dhamecha, the court extended remand till October 7.
