Notably, the ban on PUBG in various districts of Gujarat follows an order issued by the Gujarat state government, which banned the game from being played in the primary schools across the state. The arrests included six college students.

The Indian state of Gujarat recently banned children from playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, after local authorities decided the shooter was to blame for an upswing in "violent traits" among local kids.

"On Tuesday, our teams arrested six college students playing PUBG game on their mobile phones on Kalavad Road and in Jagannath Chowk area", he said. "We are working to understand the legal basis of such bans, and hope we can have a constructive dialogue with relevant authorities to explain our objectives and that they withdraw the prohibition", said the statement. The ban on PUBG Mobile is under a bailable offence.

"This game is highly addictive and the accused were so engrossed in playing them that they could not even notice our team approaching them", Rohit Raval of Special Operations Group told The Indian Express.

While the students were later released the same day on bail, their phones were seized for further investigation. And now, just days after the ban was first imposed, 10 people have been arrested in the city for violating the ban and playing the mobile in public areas. In the procedure, they will be shown as immediately bailed out by police. Now, the Ahmedabad police have issued a notification prohibiting the game from March 14 till the midnight of March 28. It is meant merely for entertainment and should be enjoyed in a healthy and responsible manner.

The company also reassured its players that they are on their side and will try their best to find a reasonable solution.

The arrests occurred Wednesday, March 13, in western Gujarat state, where local authorities enforced an outright ban on PUBG last week over concerns about its impact on the "behavior, conduct and language" of those playing it.

"As parents, we must guide our children to get the most from technology".
