SC orders govt not to ban PUBG for now

Kathmandu- The Supreme Court issued an interim order in the name of government not to implement its decision to ban the online game player- Unknown’s Battlegrounds, which is popularly known as PUBG.

Responding to the complaints from the public, particularly the parents whose children were addicted to the game like PUBG, the government had directed Internet Service Providers (ISP) to ban the PUBG on April 12. But, the SC has ordered the government not to implement the decision until its final hearing.

The game was released in 2017 for Windows PC and in late 2018 for smart phones. Advocates Praveen Subedi, Bikas Thapa, Anurag Subedi, Subas Pathak and Ritesh Poudel had filed a writ petition at the SC, naming Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Communications and Information Technology as defendants and demanding the government decision be scrapped.
