In a notorious case, the Gujarat Police arrested 10 people for playing PUBG on their phone. The mobile is banned in many parts of Gujarat.
According to a report by The Times of India, the game has been banned in the city since 6th of March. Police Commissioner Manoj Agrawal, the person behind the ban, confirmed that the youth was found playing the game in a public place. They were arrested on the spot.
Talking to the media, Mr. Agarwal said, “People have been booked but there is nothing like an arrest in it.
In the procedure, they will be shown as immediately bailed out by police. The case will go to the courts and there will be a trial for not following the notification issued.”
Rajkot Special Operations Group police inspector Mr Rohit Raval said that the youth was caught red-handed. “Our team caught these youth red-handed. The Game is highly addictive and the accused were so engrossed in playing them that they could not even notice our team approaching them. Their phones had been seized as part of the investigation,” said MR Raval.
Now, the news may seem like a joke but multiple accounts of parents have been recorded in the media of how students are playing this game 24*7.
PUBG is a player vs player action game in which 100 or more players fight to remain alive as a planet depletes of most of its population. You can choose a match solo or play starting with a small team.
Even Prime Minister Modi know of the game. When a parent asked PM Modi in Padhai pe Charcha of her child playing online games the whole day, what should she do about it, the PM replied, “Yeh PUBG wala hai kya”
