Arbaaz’s father, Aslam Merchant who is a lawyer by profession, told ETimes, “I have been meeting my son at all the hearings, but my wife had not seen him for almost 20 days.

I really don’t know what kind of background those inmates come from. Arbaaz told me he is getting anxiety attacks and cannot sleep at all”.
