An additional district judge (ADJ) has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take action of banning addictive online games in the country, according to a report in The Times of India. The judge said that these games are creating a negative impact on the children. Naresh Kumar Laka, ADJ has written to the Prime Minister seeking his intervention to ban two online games, Free Fire and PUBG India, on similar grounds of the banning PUBG Mobile by the government.

“The citizens of the country appreciated your action in banning the notorious game PUBG Mobile which caused a devastating adverse effect on the development of children. But recently two similar games, namely, Free Fire (Garena Free Fire — Rampage) and PUBG India (Battle Grounds Mobile India), are also causing adverse impact on the children like the previous PUBG,” the ADJ said in his letter to the PM Modi.

The children nowadays spend most of their time on online games, which disturbs their normal life and affects their family and social behaviour, Laka said.
