During a live PUBG mobile tournament, over 100 people were arrested. Police are still questioning the suspects after the event was called off early. Here are the reasons they were arrested and how you can avoid being in trouble!
The ban on Bangladesh of the battle royale game Player Unknown’s Battleground has come about for some strange reason. It’s not so bizarre. But it does seem like a strange target. The government’s argument is straightforward: the game is addictive and harmful.
PUBG is not considered offensive or insensitive to religion, but the authorities in Bangladesh have deemed it too addictive. PUBG is now illegal to play as of August 2021. Guess what some students did? A huge LAN event was held for PUBG. Classic.
Players are arrested during PUBG Tournament
Ogro first reported that students were visiting Chuadanga to play in a PUBG Tournament. When the police discovered this, they raided the venue, arresting over 108 people. 24 of the people arrested have been confirmed as adults and will spend a few nights in prison while the ages of others are being verified by police. If anyone is under 18, they will not be sentenced as harshly.
According to reports, the players traveled from all over Bangladesh just for this purpose:
According to police reports, hundreds of youths and teenagers from different parts of Bangladesh came to Chuadanga on Tuesday night to play the Game, which is prohibited by the Bangladesh Government.
They took part in PUBG games competition all night at a Shohortoli Daulatdia community center. Police arrived at the Shohortoli Daulatdia community center to arrest the 108 teens who took part in the PUBG tournament.
This whole thing is absurd when you consider that PUBG is a more violent and offensive game . However, even if these were the laws in place, it would be difficult for police to ignore such an event. Let’s hope that all players make it safely.
