In another episode of how negatively PUBG affects young people, a 17-year-old teen committed suicide after being scolded by his mother.

After his mother scolded him for spending too much time on PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) and confiscated his smartphone, a 17-year-old teen from Haryana’s Jind decided to hang himself to death.

According to his father, who is a policeman, his son is often scolded for his decision to drop out of school and being too engaged in playing PUBG. The father said, “I was on duty 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.”

When asked about this matter, police officials said that no official complaint had been sent, however, an investigation has been carried out.

Back in May, a 16-year-old whose name was Furkan Qureshi died after playing PUBG on his smartphone for 6 hours in a row. And in March, a 20-year-old boy from Jagitial Telanga also died because of severe neck pain caused by playing the game for 45 days. Also this year, a Karnataka boy failed his exam after writing "How to play PUBG game" in his Economics answer sheet. Another case involved two young men who died from a train accident while they were playing PUBG.

Seeing the negative influence the game has on youngsters, in early March. the Rajkot Police issued a ban on the game stating that the game was highly addictive. However, after a huge wave of backlash, the ban was withdrawn one month early.
