Haryana: PUBG and PUBG Mobile have been at the center of controversy not just in India but internationally as well. Numerous incidents with the game have portrayed it in poor light.

Recently, a 17-year-old boy from Jind, Haryana has committed suicide for not being allowed to play PUBG Mobile. The boy’s mother apparently scolded him and asked him to stop playing the game. Following this, she took away his mobile phone. The boy was a class X dropout from last year. Since then his family complained that he spent too much time playing PUBG

The father of the boy works as a policeman. He said the mother apparently scolded him for dropping out of school and playing the game all day. He said, “I was on duty on Saturday evening when my wife found him playing PUBG in his room and snatched his mobile phone. She found him hanging in the room the next morning.”

The local police have not received a complaint in the matter, although they are looking into it.

Several incidents like this are happening worldwide. Many countries like Nepal, Iraq have banned the game, while parents in UAE continue to demand a ban. The Indian state of Gujarat briefly banned PUBG Mobile last year. But the ban has since been lifted.

A double gold medallist at the recently-concluded fourth stage of the World Cup in Berlin, San took the first set narrowly when she piped the Indian by one point.

The Indian women’s team are yet to qualify for the next year’s Olympics but Deepika said the exposure will help.

The Korean then won the second set 29-25, before three perfect 10s won her the gold. This was the first individual final in an international tournament since she won a gold medal at the third stage of the world cup in Kolkata in June last year.
