Police stations were asked to implement the ban and arrest those who were still playing these games.
IPC 188 is a minor offense, which is disobedience to any order promulgated by a public servant and punishable with one-month imprisonment and a fine of ₹200. Section 135 GPA, is an offense when you actually disobey an order which is given for the prevention of riots or actions that disrupt public peace. It is punishable with 1-year imprisonment and fine. Both are not harmful or seriously type offenses, that’s why the youngsters got bail immediately, with the help of Pavan Duggal, advocate and leading cyberlaw expert.

Playing PUBG on mobile doesn’t pose any danger to public order,” he adds.
