pubg Addiction,After buying a new mobile phone to run PUBG mobile, an 18-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself after being debated with his family members.
A teenager living in the Nehru Nagar area of Kurla, Mumbai, took the extreme step when she demanded that she needs a high-end smartphone, which costs around Rs. 37,000 to play online games.
However, the young man’s family refused to pay attention to his demand and argued that the boy would not be given a mobile phone, no more than Rs. 20,000, the police said.
Feeling disturbed, the teenager took a rope and reportedly committed suicide by hanging from a ceiling fan in the kitchen of his residence.
A case of accidental death has been registered by the police and further investigations are going on in the matter.
The Battleground of PUBG Mobile or PlayerUnogn is a mobile online multiplayer game where nearly 100 players fight it in ‘Battle Royale’ mode, where the sole survivor is victorious.
Calls have been called to ban the game because it is “addictive” and links to bad results of students in the examination have been claimed.
Recently, an 11-year-old student filed a petition, requesting a ban on PUBG mobile from the Bombay High Court through her mother, because it “promotes violence, aggression and cyberbullying”.
