Ten Kids Arrested In India For Playing PUBG

PUBG’s been banned in India, and at least 16 players have been arrested

The students were released on bail.

Gujarat is the only state in India to have banned PUBG, which a local minister described as "a demon in every house". Police said the accused did not even realise that the police team was approaching them to make arrests while playing PUBG Mobile.

PUBG Mobile was banned in the city of Rajkot by an order of the police Commissioner Manoj Agrawal.

In addition to that, PUBG Mobile reaffirmed its stand on the game's core objective to entertain its players and advised players that it should be enjoyed in a responsible manner.

Earlier this month, Rajkot Police issued a ban against the popular mobile gaming app - PUBG - in public citing the game to be addictive and harmful to the youngsters. 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. The ban on PUBG Mobile is under a bailable offence.

The arrests occurred Wednesday, March 13, in western Gujarat state, where local authorities enforced an outright ban on PUBG last week over concerns about its impact on the "behavior, conduct and language" of those playing it.

The Rajkot Police on Thursday said they had arrested at least 10 people for playing mobile game PUBG which has been banned in several districts of Gujarat, The Times of India reported. People have been booked but there is nothing like arrest in it.

The complete statement reads, "PUBG MOBILE is a game". It is meant merely for entertainment and should be enjoyed in a healthy and responsible manner. The ban on the said games was issued by the authorities after claiming that the violent games were causing adverse behavioural change amongst its players.

"As parents, we must guide our children to get the most from technology". "On Tuesday, our teams arrested six college students playing PUBG on their mobile phones on Kalavad Road and in Jagannath Chowk area". "To PUBG MOBILE players, we want to assure you that we are on your side and we will try our best to find a reasonable solution", said PUBG Mobile in a statement released to the media.
