Students Arrested For Playing PUBG In Gujarat, India

Indian police are arresting students for playing PUBG during exam season

"We have registered two cases against them under IPC Section 188 for violating the notification", said the Police Inspector.

The notification said that the ban would be in force from March 14 till the midnight of March 28.

The Indian Express had reported that the police in Rajkot had arrested ten people for playing the game, a week after a notification was issued banning the popular multiplayer game. Those arrested will have to stand trial at a later date.

On January 23, Gujarat become the only state to ban the game.

PUBG Mobile is a battle royale genre of mobile game that has amassed more than 12 million installed on the Google Play store and the iOS App Store. It is meant merely for entertainment and should be enjoyed in a healthy and responsible manner.

The ban was announced last week by local authorities to combat what they called the spread of "violent traits" in kids playing the game.

Myhre also wanted to convey a message to the youth climate activists. "We love learning, that's important for them to know". She said she was "with Jacinda last night" and she had asked the prime minister what she would say to the people of Nelson.


The heavy-handed approach against PUBG Mobile has raised several questions on the freedom to practice one's own will in the country. "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.

Rohit Raval, Rajkot Special Operations Group police inspector, said their phones had been seized as part of the investigation. "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.

The ban was reportedly issued due to concerns about the game's impact on players' "behavior, conduct, and language". The police commissioner appealed citizens to contact the nearest police station in case they came across anyone playing PUBG in Ahmedabad city limits. The police have also released instructions to get rid of the game which asks parents to monitor the use of smartphones by their children and even asks students to avoid discussing PUBG with their friends.
