Player Unknown Battle Ground alias PUBG. How often we hear this name in our daily life. Probably, this is the most heard mobile game in this decade. Well, there have been many demands to ban this app, which can affect the mental health of the children. In the wake of many adverse effects, many countries have banned this app. Now, in Hyderabad, the police received a complaint from a couple about their own son.
A 16-year-old boy, who got addicted to multi-player game PUBG, faked his own kidnapping in Hyderabad after his mother confiscated his mobile phone. The boy also borrowed someone’s phone and called his parents, demanding ₹3 lakhs as ransom by pretending to be a kidnapper.
Police rescued him from a bus terminal on Monday when he was about to leave for his grandparents’ house in Andhra Pradesh. The police handed him over to his parents later.
The minor boy was a PUBG game addict and was lashing out after his mother confiscated his mobile phone in a bid to wean the boy away from the game.
