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.
