A 15 year old Indian boy killed his elder brother in the Thane District of Maharashtra for not letting him play PUBG Mobile.
According to the police, the elder brother, identified as Mohammed Shaikh, scolded his younger brother for spending too much time playing PUBG. The youngster got enraged after his PUBG sessions were continuously interrupted by his brother. In a fit of rage, the 15 year old stabbed him to death.
“The boy flew into rage when the victim asked him to stop playing the game on his mobile phone this morning,: said senior police inspector Mamata D’Souza.
The victim was reportedly stabbed multiple times with a scissor. Investigations reveal that his head also hit a wall.
Mohammed Shaikh was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
Furthermore, the 15 year old has been charged with murder under section 302 under the Indian Penal Code.
