11 year old boy knocks Mumbai HC for PUBG ban

An eleven-year-old boy moved the Bombay High Court Thursday seeking a ban on popular mobile game ‘PUBG’.
 
Ahad Nizam, who filed the public interest litigation through his mother, said the game promotes violence, aggression and cyber-bullying.
 
The court should direct the Maharashtra government to ban it, the PIL said.
 
“The petition has also sought a direction to the central government to form an Online Ethics Review Committee for periodical checking of such violence-oriented online content,” petitioner’s lawyer Tanveer Nizam said.
 
It is likely to come up for hearing before a division bench headed by Chief Justice N H Patil.
 
PUBG or ‘Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds’ is an online game where two or more online partners play on the backdrop of a battlefield.
