It seems that the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) released the ban, thanks to the country’s federal investigation agency’s request.
Deputy director of NTA, Sandip Adhikari, said that PUBG is “addictive to children and teenagers” and he raises concerns that parents are worried that it will distract their young ones from studies as well as other duties.
Additionally, NTA has ordered all Nepal’s internet service providers, mobile providers, and telcos to block any any form of streaming of PUBG.
Interestingly, the Metropolitan Crime Division (MCD) chief, Pratap Singh, had a few words to say on the matter:
Parents and schools had complained that the game was affecting their children’s studies and making them more aggressive. When we consulted with psychiatrists, they also said that the violence in the game can make people aggressive in real life Pratap Singh, MCD Chief and Superintendent of police
Pokdepinion: Oh wow. I wonder how the psychiatrists could’ve come up with the conclusion that violence in games can make people aggressive in real life too. I’d really like to see his/her reports.
