Such heartbreaking news only reminds us of the dangers of overindulging in a certain thing and this is not the first time PUBG Mobile has been directly related to a fatal incident. Reports of suicides and murders have surfaced in the past which were in direct relation to this addictive and over popular mobile esports title. This just goes on to prove that despite countless efforts by the game’s developers as well as numerous cases, it is the players who need to control their obsession and indulgence in the game. We at Talkesport have a heartfelt wish that no such cases happen anymore and we send condolences to Harshal’s family.
