People were arrested simply for playing the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

It happened in India. In several cities, people were arrested simply for playing the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds game on their cell phones. The information came after a BuzzFeed News report on the game's popularity in India and the ensuing government effort to contain the movement. Authorities cite gambling as a powerful distraction from academics as grounds for prohibition. Over there, some parents accuse the game of encouraging violent or aggressive tendencies in their children. In PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, players explore an island with 99 other players and are forced to search for weapons and supplies on a quest to be the last to stand.

The BuzzFeed report reports that police officers were looking for young people in public places with their phones in landscape mode, considered an indication that they might be playing. The title was banned in the state of Gujarat in early March. While many of the detainees were released with warnings or small fines, others spent nights in jail for the crime of playing video games. Even if the punishments were not severe, the report pointed to the trauma of being arrested and the stigma surrounding it as lasting effects of the laws.
