MUMBAI: 

An eleven-year-old boy moved the Bombay High Court on 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.
