PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is currently banned in India. However, before it was banned there had been many cases of gamers being addicted to the game and resorting to crime if they were not allowed to play.
A similar incident has been reported in Lahore, Pakistan, where a man fought with his family and shot them with a gun. Ary News quoted Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Umar Baloch saying,
“The accused recreated a PUBG scene. The accused had a brawl with his family the other day. Today, he brought a pistol from somewhere and opened fire.”

The News PK reports that the man named Bilal was from Nawan Kot locality and used to consume drugs. He got angry when his mother asked him to stop consuming drugs and shot several people.
