In what could be good news for PUBG Mobile fans and players, Ahmedabad Police has reportedly lifted the ban on PUBG Mobile. The ban was imposed by Ahmedabad Police on March 14, a week after Rajkot Police Commissioner Manoj Agarwal issued a notification imposing a ban on PUBG Mobile. Apparently, the ban order was revoked after people started venting their anger and frustration on social media against Police.
According to a report, the ban order was revoked after Ahmedabad Police and district magistrates across Gujarat were instructed by the home department to lift the restriction. The home dept. was approached by the education department after police arrested students for playing PUBG on mobile phone. These arrests were made under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Section 188 covers disobedience to an order lawfully promulgated by a public servant if the action causes danger to human life, health or safety.
Momo Challenge also faced a similar ban. Earlier, Ahmedabad Police Commissioner A K Singh had reportedly claimed in his March 13 notification that players develop violent tendencies by playing games such as PUBG Mobile and Momo Challenge.
In a previous statement, Tencent said that PUBG Mobile is a game and it is meant for entertainment and should be played in a "healthy and responsible manner." PUBG Mobile also assured to introduce what it calls "a healthy game system" by limiting play time for under-aged players. PUBG Mobile has assured players that they will find a solution to this.
Last week, several PUBG Mobile players reported about being unable to play the game after hitting 6-hour time limit. However, PUBG later termed it an ‘error’ and fixed the issue within hours.
