National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has sought a report on the action taken against the game from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology.

The NCPCR took up the issue after a Hyderabad-based Class 9 student had to be given medication by a psychiatrist for PUBG addiction.

While kids are addicted to the game, Parents are still clueless to the extent of damage the game is doing on their ward's psychology.

“Extended exposure to the game dehumanises and desensitises a person to criminality over time, the gruesome way of killing is being made to appear as normal."
