PUBG Banned in Nepal over Concerns of Kids Being Addicted

Regulatory bodies in Nepal have ordered ISPs and mobile providers to block PUBG due to concerns of children becoming addicted to the game.

Nepal's authorities and parents believe that kids and teens are addicted to PUBG and as such a decision was made to officially ban the game. Nepal’s federal investigation agency requested from the Nepal Telecommunications Agency (NTA) to order ISPs and mobile providers to block users from playing PUBG. Even though there were no recorded incidents involving PUBG, it is their belief that the game is impacting their other day-to-day activities and school work.

This comes barely a month after India banned the game and multiple people were arrested for playing it.
