Train Kills Two Who Were Playing PUBG on Railway Track
Playing PUBG can make players oblivious to their surroundings, leading to such incidents.
Two men have been killed in the Hingoli district of Maharashtra while playing PUBG on the railway track when they were hit by a train.
The two men Nagesh Gore (24) and Swapnil Annapurne (22) were playing the multiplayer game near the railway tracks when they were run over by the train bound to Ajmer from Hyderabad. The incident occurred 570 kilometres from Mumbai.
The police said that the bodies were found by locals residing in the area late in the night.
PUBG has become a rage in India ever since it was launched almost a year ago. There are many cities in India that have banned the game citing addiction. Only last week, the Rajkot Police declared a ban on the game followed by Bhavnagar and some parts of Gir Somnath also banning the game.
It was reported that 10 people were arrested in Rajkot for violating the ban and playing PUBG. The ban is still in effect till 31 March. PUBG has responded to the police with a statement saying it promotes responsible gaming.
