Two Teenagers From Lahore Commit Suicide Over PUBG

The Punjab police has decided to ban popular battle royale shooter PUBG in Lahore after two teenagers killed themselves over the online video game, the department announced on Tuesday.

The Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Punjab Police, Ashfaq Khan, has decided to write a letter to the Federal Investigation Agency and the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) requesting them to ban PUBG in Lahore.

PUBG is a battle royale based survival game where 100 players are dropped onto a large battlefield where they battle it out for loot and chicken dinners (#1 spot). Since its launch, the game has done exceptionally well with millions of players downloading the game during the first week of launch. In December 2019, PUBG Mobile had 200 million more downloads.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) directed concerned authorities to ban the mobile game in the region following its “negative impact on children”. The recent suicide cases have been registered by the police and further investigations are underway.

As of now, reports claim that the suicide cases occurred due to the teenagers being told to stop playing PUBG.


  • Sab Bakwas koi PUBG ki wajah kesay suicide kar sakta hei, propoganda kiya ja raha hei PUBG kay khilaf kitnay log hein jin ka carrier hei PUBG woh Pakistan ko dollar kama kar de rahay hein PUBG kay zariye.

  • Pubg,I know it’s a beautiful video game but nowadays young generation over use it and it’s totally based on killing and shooting someone and over using it is programming our minds to commit things which are bad like the two teen-agers killed themselves so my personal suggestion about it is it should be banned not just in lahore or Pakistan but throughout the world.or it can cause many more death’s.
    Thank you

    • PUBG is just a game. Playing FPS games does not lead to suicide or killings others. These two suicides are not because of PUBG, it is because the kids were spoiled and could not take no for an answer. Tarbiyat ka qasoor hai janab. LHC , PTA should have some common sense.

    • Bhai ye comment apka gaming knowledge show krta hai, bhai PUBG se bi ziada gore games hn, ever heard of Red dead or other fps games, sara qasoor parents ka hai, bacho ko iPad le dete hn society ko apni ameeri dikhane kelye phr jb kch ghlt ho to qasoor PUBG pe

  • Yahan University or College ki wajha sai 100 gunah ziada suicide cases hotai hain as compared to PUBG, domestic violence ki wajha sai 100 cases aatai hain laikn kamal hai in zaheen logon par jo hamare ooper bathai hain k asal maslai solve karne k bajai aik game ko ban kar rahe hain!

  • It should be banned. Not because the content is violent but being main reason of wastage of time and money as compared to other games.

  • I think, anything whose uses get cross limitations has always been harmful for youth, then whichever the case may be. pubg, tiktok and such type of other stuff is making especially the youth undisciplined, and keeping them away from creativity, culture and interest of education. If we take these things under consideration, then it should be banned sincerely.

    • True for non existence of physical activities in present age. But solution doesnt lay in banning a couple of apps. Sooner or later another app will take its place. So act logical. parents should limit screen time for kids, and “avoid handing over phone in teen age”.
      LHC should spent its time on real estate mafia who are cutting plots on playgrounds and parks rather banning apps for which they didnt even have a clue..

  • Don’t ban pubg because it is a really good game the two youngsters who commit suicide is due to that they dont have enough control on there minds I am also teenage boy but I am playing this game for 1 year and nothing happens to me because I am able to control my mind. If you want to ban apps ban tiktok that force teenage boys to change their gender for viewer and likes which is not beneficial for their minds

      • By the sense of your comment, you are critisizing for the sake of critisizing without ample knowledge of neither psychology nor PUBG game itself. But dont bother yourself, since its a common trait of our nation embedded by our super knowledgeable journalists.

  • Agr itni fikr ha tu pubg se phle ap tik tok or likee pr ban lga de.muslim larkian jo apna jism pori Dunya ma show krti ha us pa tu kisi nay action nhi Liya.phle tik tok k bare ma sochye. Thanks

  • Reason kia hui suicide randi rona to daal dia hai ab wajha bhi to btao aisi hawa mein ban ban ky naaray lgany sy kia hoga game to hame hoti chahy pubg ho ya koi or.

  • 2 teenagers committed suicide over a game , so ban it! ok. 100s of student commit suicide over exams so ban education , is not a right move.? (committing suicide is a poor mindset behaviour ban is not solution ). today they are committing suicide over a game tomorrow for other stuff. this is parenting issue and society.

  • yeh kia logic hai? game is responsible for suicide? yeh police walon ko mental health ka kia pta k kon kis tarah ki life jee raha hai. it’s the parents responsibility to keep track of their kids activities.
    har cheez ma ban ban laga rakhi hai noob insan.

  • Government should provide enough job for young people so they don’t have time to play games too much,
    Instead govt didn’t provide any job opportunities and blame youngester to playing games
    What should they do instead of playing games??????????????????????????.

  • Wah! Bari chinta ho rahi he bacho ke future ki . Logo ko jobs ki kami he to auur kya kare? Jihno ne sucide kiya he unki reported to check ki ha na. demagi halat thek ti ya pagal te. do bevkuuf logo ke lya PUBG ban kar rahe ho.

  • The men 2 bache marine k bad authorities ko Hess ho raha hai k yes cheez ban krne laiq hai. Or cities men job bache maren gay TV ban ho ga?

  • The persons whom I know playing PUbg are mentally ill. Playing game for 20 hrs in a day has cause them mental illness.

  • It’s a sad reality of today but it’s not the fault of game age restrictions has been written on pubg that’s 18+!! How can a game or any app can become reason of someone’s death?? It’s the fault of them selves and their parents n family they should have see what their kids are doing…!! Stop blaming others wrong decision correct ur self!!!????

  • There are shooting games since 1990 and nothing is happening and blaming on game it is our country and their parents who thinks pubg is bad and in school putting pressure and torturing students while people or children are relifed playing this game and many Pakistanis won tournaments and represented our country in pubg the sad thing is that they are focusing on pubg and doing nothing about tiktok where boys are becoming girls lol teenagers are now making more money from this game than a normal job and If this is banned people are gonna play by vpn?just saying if any one is playing pubg for more than 20 hours THEN THEY ARE MENTALLY ILL. BECAUSE IT IS NOT okay… They can’t do anything about it I am happy?

  • I am Gamer I like to play games in pc mobile or consoles in my opinion It is not about pubg there are lot of battle games but the pubg is famous these days that is why everyone target this game
    Gaming don’t make a person suicide in these days there are lot of bad things in society and social media gaming took a teenager away from that things but Playing 24 hours yeah it’s bad then
    but Playing maximum 3 or 4 hours is not bad
    Gaming teaches lot of things and lot of people’s saying it’s waste of time we are teenager we have a lot of free time ? bro.

  • Please ban pubgand also ban education,many students are committing suicide because of getting failed,depressed please ban it too! Sometimes even literate people get out of their mind please interogate Sushant Singh rajput’s suicide and maybe ban movies too!

  • If pubg kills then ban every online games as a gamer we play for fun or waste a free time for us . We play, we enjoyed but we don’t suicide it’s not because of pubg nor other online games it’s there choice to kill themselves . Sorry to the lost lives rest in peace to both .

  • McDonalds kills more kids
    Rock and roll supposedly did the same
    Crossing the road kills more people
    So ban McDonald’s music and roads

  • Two committed suicide; Police urges pubg to be banned just because of two people. Say what if it was banned and 70% of players committed suicide again since it was their only source of entertainment and dreams? Banning has nothing to do but just expand the suicide rates. Condolences to the family.

    • Pub g Should be bann because this game should consume a lot of time (people are not giving time to theirr families ; people not giving proper time to study ; not giving proper time to their work ; not giving proper time to the other things) because of the pubg.Government should also bann tik tok in all over Pakistan not only in Lahore.
