PUBG Ban: 10 Arrested in Rajkot for Playing PUBG in Public

The same day, Gandhigram police arrested a 25-year-old private firm employee for playing the game on his phone, a release from the police control room said.

Police in Gujarat have not banned Fortnite, a popular rival to PUBG developed by US-based Epic Games.

A few Indian cities have now placed a ban on PUBG Mobile. "This game is highly addictive and the accused were so engrossed in playing them that they could not even notice our team approaching them", SOG police inspector Rohit Raval told the publication. "We have registered two cases against them under IPC Section 188 for violating the notification", said the Police Inspector. "We have filed six different cases against them", Vanzara said that the six were granted bail.

The Indian state of Gujarat recently banned children from playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, after local authorities decided the shooter was to blame for an upswing in "violent traits" among local kids. "We are working to understand the legal basis of such bans, and hope we can have a constructive dialogue with relevant authorities to explain our objectives and that they withdraw the prohibition", said the statement.

The police department seized the mobile phones from these three men for investigation, while what ground-breaking findings the police department may find from the phones of the arrested men other than the installed game is unknown to us but we're on the lookout, if any evidence comes, we'll notify you.

In a country where gaming isn't seen as a viable career option by most, ten college students were arrested by the Rajkot City Police, Gujarat. Days after Rajkot banned the game, Bhavnagar and Gir Somnath districts of the state too issued a notification banning the game in public.

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

The company said it has been working on the introduction of a healthy gameplay system in India to promote balanced as well as responsible gaming, including limiting play time for under-aged players.

The ban was reportedly issued due to concerns about the game's impact on players' "behavior, conduct, and language".

"As parents, we must guide our children to get the most from technology".
