But first, what is PUBG, why is it so addictive?

PUBG is an online multiplayer game, which is the short form of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

It has been developed by PUBG Corporation, a subordinate of South Korean video game company named Bluehole.

Its high graphics, HD audio, hard-headed weapons, impartial gaming territory alongside the option of battling with other squads, make it a truly addictive game.

Treatment

'As his condition did not improve, he was brought back'

Now coming back to the youth, he was operated on February 19 by Dr. Manan Gogiya in Chhindwara.

While describing his situation, the physician said, "There were ulcers in his stomach that had created an obstruction. When his condition didn't improve in Nagpur, his family brought him back here. He wasn't able to eat anything and lost 5-6 kilograms in just a few days."
