Tencent India Trying to Find a 'Reasonable Solution — PUBG Mobile Arrests

It is safe to assume that the online multiplayer game PUBG (Player Unknown's Battlegrounds) is not just a mere "craze".

On March 6, a notification was issued stating that PUBG Mobile and the MOMO Challenge were banned, the report added. The push that made this ban notification was the recently revived Momo Challenge. Conviction under Section 188 carries either a maximum prison sentence of one month, a 200 rupee fine (roughly $3), or both.

The detained teenagers were taken into custody but later released with a warning, said Manoj Agrawal, police commissioner of Rajkot city in Gujarat on Thursday. Those arrested will have to stand trial at a later date. Indian media outlets have reported at least 16 arrests so far, though it seems many of those arrests are being treated fairly lightly by authorities, as those arrested have generally been bailed out directly by police.

The arrest took place in western Gujrat where the authorities had previously enforced a ban on PUBG on March 9 which would be retained till April 30. But the game has attracted a lot of flak for being the reason behind gaming addiction, mental health imbalance, divorces and even suicides.

Four North Korean men Malaysian police had identified as suspects fled the country just hours after Kim's assassination. Siti Aisyah and Doan Thi Huong say they were set up and thought they were performing a prank for a reality TV show.

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. Close on the heels of Rajkot and some other cities in the state banning the game that has become a rage among youngsters, the Ahmedabad city police also imposed a ban on it.

"Our team caught these youths red-handed". Police stations were asked to implement the ban and arrest those who were still playing these games, Rajkot taluka police inspector V S Vanzara said, reported PTI. 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. "But it is a bailable offence. 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". The game is also having an impact on studies as well as behaviour, conduct and language of children and youth... In the procedure, they will be shown as immediately bailed out by police.

"As parents, we must guide our children to get the most from technology".
