Mumbai College Students Acting Like A Street Gang By Claiming Territory To Play PUBG

A bunch of local college students laying claim to the tree for their regular PUBG Mobile matches by hanging a warning sign.

Some people are taking PUBG seriously, too seriously it seems. Until now, incidents related to PUBG that we have heard about include suicides, train accidents, and failing exams.

But the latest one is about a group of college students acting like a street gang by trying to mark their territory.

The incident happened in Badlapur in Mumbai. A local resident paid a visit to the Thane police, reporting that they had detected a worrying sign that was hung on a tree. The sign read, “This place is reserved only for PUBG game players. By order of Vijay Bhau."

Seeing the complaint of the resident, which he posted on his Twitter account, the police quickly reached the location to take down the poster. It turns out the sign was a product of a bunch of college students in the area. The students marked the tree as their regular spot for PUBG Mobile matches maybe because it provided them shade when they played together.

The police confirm that, after they alerted the youths, they have made any returned trip back to the location. However, the incident is still a warning sign for the effects of PUBG in particular and gaming in general. The games youngsters play are not harmful by themselves. It’s the people who are playing them. By the time, the players become addictive and show no self-restraint, which can lead to them causing troubles for themselves and other people around them.

For the past few months, the game has received criticism from school authorities and parents across the country. According to them, students’ studies are affected heavily by PUBG Mobile due to it being a major distraction. In India, after the local authorities implemented a ban on PUBG Mobile, 10 college students in Rajkot, Gujarat, were taken into custody for playing the game in public places.
