"PUBG Mobile is a game". As per the ban, if anyone was reported for playing PUBG, then the person caught playing the game would face prosecution under the Central Government Act, section 188. The Rajkot City Police was on a "special drive" and six students were arrested by sub-inspector N D Damor who were playing PUBG Mobile at hangout spots near Atmiya College.

Six more students, between the ages of 18 and 22, were reportedly arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The ban was announced last week by local authorities to combat what they called the spread of "violent traits" in kids playing the game. "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.
