VIJAYAWADA: A teenager allegedly committed suicide after his friends mocked him following defeat in online game PUBG.

The incident was reported from Machilipatnam town of Andhra Pradesh's Krishna district on Sunday. The 16-year-old felt reportedly humiliated after his friends mocked him when he lost the online game. He came home and allegedly hanged himself to the ceiling fan. The boy is son of Shantiraj, a local leader of Congress party and was addicted to playing PUBG. He played the game with his friends on Sunday. When he lost the game, his friends ridiculed him. He felt humiliated over this and resorted to the extreme step.

Police shifted the body for autopsy and took up investigation. District Congress president Tantia Kumari, who consoled the boy's family, later demanded that the state and the central government should ban PUBG like games as it is claiming lives. PUBG was banned in the country in 2019 but recently it made a comeback with a different name. IANS
