PUBG has taken the country by storm, but instances like a fitness trainer losing mental balance after playing the game has dealt a blow to its reputation.
To this effect, Gujarat government, on Tuesday, issued a circular to district authorities asking them to ensure a ban on the game in primary schools as children were getting addicted and it was "adversely affecting their studies".
