From your query, What I can understand is this 1) A case under sec.498A of IPC filed by the wife against your friend is pending 2) your friend want to see/visit his new born baby..
Of course a father is entitled to see /visit his child. Pendency of case under sec.498A of IPC is not a bar to see /visit the child. You can approach a family court and file petition for the custody of the Child and interlocutory application seeking visitation / interaction rights.

Visitation rights depend on the orders when you file a OP before the respective Family court.
Your friend will have to file a OP before the family court to get visitation rights and the same is possible only after the child's birth.

Every thing will depend upon the outcome of the proceedings in the case under sec 498A. If the court finds that your presence in the house where his wife and baby are staying; is dangerous to peaceful life of the baby and the mother, then the court may refuse to allow you to see the child. The outcome will depend on the evidences on record.
