A young boy in Faisalabad lost his life on Monday after he reportedly “failed to win” a game of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) online, family sources said.
According to hospital staff, the young boy, who hailed from Jaranwala, was shifted to the hospital yesterday in an unconscious state.
The family said that the young man had been playing the online game for the last six months. Losing the last stage of the game last night had a profound effect on the young man’s mind, they added.
However, the exact cause of death was not explained.
PUBG Pakistan was previously banned in Pakistan on a temporary basis after reports emerged that it had negative effects on the minds of the youth.
