PUBG Mobile- Player Unknown's Battlegrounds is an online multiplayer game and is much loved by video game players across the world.However, the game has been found to be addictive and affecting the lives of those who play it. In fact, the latest victims of this addictive game are none other than CRPF- Central Reserve Police Force personnel in India.
The CRPF commanding officers have been told to order a ban on troops playing PUBG on their mobile phones. It has been observed that playing the game is affecting the operational abilities of the CRPF personnel as they are not getting enough sleep and rest.
Many CRPF men have taken to playing PUBG and are spending a lot of time on their mobiles. This has not only reduced their physical activity but is also affecting their social behavior as they avoid talking to fellow jawans and prefer to play the game.
Commanding officers have been instructed to ensure that PUBG is deleted from the mobile phones of the soldiers and also to conduct random checks of mobile phones in future.
PUBG game is believed to be highly addictive and makes the players aggressive which includes students and teenagers. Countries like Nepal, China, Iraq and India have often raised concerns about the harmful effects of PUBG addiction.
