19 arrested in Gujarat’s Rajkot for playing banned mobile game PUBG

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

"Police checked their mobile to see if the PUBG game was running and also checked the history in their handset". The arrests included six college students. Police said the accused did not even realise that the police team was approaching them to make arrests while playing PUBG Mobile. 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.

While six students have been released on bail, others are in the process of being released.

The same day, Gandhigram police arrested a 25-year-old private firm employee while Rajkot police's special operations group picked up three persons, according to two official releases. Days after Rajkot banned the game, Bhavnagar and Gir Somnath districts of the state too issued a notification banning the game in public.

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. "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", PUBG Mobile said in an email statement. The police commissioner appealed citizens to contact the nearest police station in case they came across anyone playing PUBG in Ahmedabad city limits.

Gujarat is the only Indian state to ban the game - which has been downloaded more than 100 million times around the world.

"It has been learnt through different mediums that there is a rise in violent tendencies among children and youth because of PUBG game / MOMO challenge".

"Due to these games, the education of children and youth are being affected and it affects the behaviour, manners, speech and development of the youth and children", an order by local police dated March 6, said.
