'They have suffered enough,' argues lawyer

A Mumbai court has said that Aryan Khan's bail hearing in connection to his arrest after a drug raid conducted on a cruise ship will continue tomorrow.

According to the Times of India, the son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was represented in court by senior advocate Amit Desai.

"They are some young kids. In many countries, these substances are legal. Let us not penalise in bail. Let us not make it worse for them," Desai said.

"They have suffered enough, they have learnt their lesson, if at all. They are not peddlers, racketeers or traffickers."
