10 held in Gujarat for playing PUBG game on mobile phone

Indian police are arresting students for playing PUBG during exam season

"People have been booked but there is nothing like an arrest in it", Mr. Agrawal further told the media. Their report states that players will only be arrested if they do not cooperate with the police's demands to turn off the game. In the procedure, they will be shown as immediately bailed out by police.

"As part of a special drive, police sub-inspector ND Damor arrested the six youths who were playing the game at tea stalls and fast-food joints outside a college on Kalavad road on Tuesday", said Rajkot taluka police inspector VS Vanzara to Indian Express. Close on the heels of Rajkot and some other cities in the state banning the game that has become a rage among youngsters, the Ahmedabad city police also imposed a ban on it.

"Keeping in mind public safety and security, and to ensure that law and order situation is maintained, a ban is placed on playing PUBG and Momo challenge in Ahmedabad city police limits".

Police has registered two cases against the arrested individuals under IPC Section 188 for violating the notification issued by Police Commissioner and Section 35 for playing PUBG despite the ban under Gujarat Police Act. The ban will only continue until March 30th, according to IBTimes. "This game is highly addictive and the accused were so engrossed in playing them that they could not even notice our team approaching them".

"Our team caught these youths red-handed".

Bluehole's statement to Eurogamer concluded with, "we are honored to have a passionate community of PUBG Mobile players in India and globally and continue to welcome their feedback to make PUBG Mobile the best game ever". The notification highlights that games like PUBG incite violence.

After that report, another six people were arrested today - a group "undergraduate students and their young friends who are doing private jobs". The games were adversely affecting the studies and the overall behaviour, conduct and language of children, the notification said.
