1. Self-harm

Earlier in January, a fitness trainer from Jammu was brought to a psychiatric hospital after he started hurting himself. The case was the sixth one in the state.

After a year of playing PUBG, a youngster in Pune reportedly became so addicted that he began to skip school so that he could continue playing. The result was that he missed an entire school year.
