Jammu and Kashmir Students Association (JKSA) has asked Governor Satya Pal Naik to ban the popular game PUBG Mobile following poor performance of the students in the recently conducted 10th and 12th board exams in the state.

As per reports, JKSA chairman Abrar Ahmad Bhat has called the game a ‘spoiler of futures,’ while Deputy Chairman Raqif Makhdoomi has said, “The game should have been banned immediately after the poor performance of 12th and 10th class results but still we haven’t seen any action. The addition to this game has become more concerning than addition to drugs as we get to see youngsters 24 hours on the mobile phones and playing the game and doing nothing.”
