A 21-year-old student allegedly killed himself in West Bengal’s Nadia district for not being able to play PUBG, police mentioned on Sunday.
Pritam Halder, an ITI student, was found hanging in his home in Purba Lalpur in the Chakdaha police station area, they mentioned.
After having breakfast on Friday morning, Pritam went to his room, his mother Ratna stated.
“When I went to call him for lunch, his room was locked from inside. After repeated bangings when he did not open the door, I called the neighbors. They broke into the room and found him hanging from the ceiling fan,” she mentioned.
Police mentioned they’ve registered a case of unnatural death.
Ratna claimed that his son was apparently frustrated for not being able to play PUBG.
“He would play it at night. I think he died by suicide as he was not being able to play PUBG,” she mentioned.
Police mentioned that after talking to the members of the family they believe that Pritam killed himself for not being able to play the mobile game, which was blocked by the government on Wednesday.
Pritam’s father Biswajit Halder is a retired Armyman and the mother is a homemaker. They even have a daughter.
