Punjab police to ban PUBG in Lahore after two teenagers commit suicide
On Tuesday, the Punjab police have made a decision of banning a popular online game Playersunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) in Lahore after two teenagers take their own lives while playing the game.
Ashfaq Khan, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police (Operations Wing) Lahore has decided to write a letter to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to ban PUBG because many teenagers are committing suicide while playing the game.
According to Ashfaq Khan, the online game is making the teenagers vulnerable. In the past four days, two teenagers had committed suicide in Lahore. He believes this is the right time to ban all online games.
Lahore High Court had directed the concerned authorities last month to ban PUBG following its bad impacts on the children.
The directives were issued by a Lahore High Court (LHC) division bench headed by Justice Atir Mahmood on 18 May following a petition stating that the PUBG gameplay had a serious impact on children’s education and psychological progress.
