Nepal bans popular online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds

We heard  police in India arrested ten college students for playing PUBG after some cities in Gujarat, India restricted the title, and now an entire nation has done the same. Nepal has directed every ISP and mobile operator to ban the game after The Metropolitan Crime Division had filed a Public Interest Litigation at the Kathmandu District Court on Wednesday, seeking permission to ban PUBG. In its litigation, the division said that the game was having a negative effect on the behaviour and study of children and youths. The district court gave permission to ban PUBG the same day. 
Not only kids, but adults are also addicted to the game. Psychologist Gopal Dhakal said they were receiving cases of even professionals not being able to concentrate on work and missing deadlines, besides other behavioural, social and family problems, because of addiction to PUBG.
PUBG, which was released in 2017 for Windows PC and in late 2018 for smartphones, is an online multiplayer battle royale game. In the game, up to 100 players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed. The last player or team standing wins the round.
