PUBG fever has gripped the country for some time, but every now and then the news is popping about the adverse effect the game can have on children’s mind. Addiction to PUBG has touched new limits after yesterday an 18-year old youth committed suicide because he wasn’t given a device that could play the game.
As per ANI, the teen, who was a resident of Kurla’s Nehru Nagar area of Mumbai, when he was denied a Rs 37,000 mobile by his parents to play the game. The police said that the parents refused to buy a device which costed more than Rs 20,000 for the youth. Distraught, the boy committed suicide by hanging himself in the kitchen of his house. The report states that an accidental death case has been registered by the police.
There have been several instances where a ban on the game has been called but as of right now the game is freely available for everyone to download. An 11-year old had filed a PIL with the Maharashtra High Court after his letter calling for a ban on the game got no response from the authorities.
