The Indian Express had reported that the police in Rajkot had arrested ten people for playing the game, a week after a notification was issued banning the popular multiplayer game. The police report said that the game was "highly addictive and the accused were so engrossed in playing they did not even see police approaching". "The case will go to the courts and there will be a trial for not following the notification issued", Agrawal had told The Indian Express.

Players had their phones seized for investigation.

The police seized the mobile phones of the individuals for "the goal of investigation" and it has charged the arrested individuals under the Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code for violating the notification issued by Police Commissioner and Section 35 for playing PUBG despite ban Gujarat Police Act. "We have filed six different cases against them", Vanzara said that the six were granted bail. We were thus surprised to learn that local authorities in a few cities have chose to impose a ban on playing our game.

The Rajkot Special operations group caught three youths "red handed" playing the game and charged them under IPC Section 188 for violating the notification. "We are working to understand the legal basis of such bans, and hope we can have a constructive dialogue with relevant authorities to explain our objectives and that they withdraw the prohibition", said the statement. More so when you consider Prime Minister Modi's comments surrounding the game in January during an interaction with students and teachers which imply a softer stance rather than outright arrests.
