Earlier this week, Rajkot police arrested 10 people for playing PUBG mobile game and their smartphones have also been seized. The Rajkot Police have arrested 10 people who were caught playing this game. Out of the 10 people arrested, 6 of them are undergraduates, who have been playing this game for the past few days, although the police have released these people on bail. After this arrest, Tencent India, a company running the PUBG game, has made its statement for the first time.

Earlier, a child from Bombay High Court had demanded a ban on this game. In many states, there has been a demand for a ban on PUBG. After the poor health of a gym trainer in Jammu and Kashmir, the demand for bans was started in the state.

Tencent India has taken the side of its users and stated that the company is with PUBG players and will soon talk to Rajkot Police and demand to remove the ban on PUBG. The company has said, “We are surprised that many cities in India have been banned from advertising or playing this game. We are trying to understand the legal basis of such restrictions and for this, we will also talk to the concerned officials. We are standing with our players and will soon find a suitable solution to the game.”

This matter has recently been related to the arrest of 10 people playing by the Rajkot police, although all have been released on bail.

This order was implemented from 9th March, but many people are playing this secretly and mocking police over twitter too!

In the order of police officials, it was stated that during the ban on PUBG, if anyone is found playing this game and is found guilty, strict action will be taken against him and he/she will be arrested under Section 188 of the IPC. Also, a fine of up to Rs 200 can be imposed.
