Hazaribagh, [Arvind Rana]. The student of class 10th got such a passion to play PUBG on the name of online education that he looted six lakh 32 thousand rupees from his father’s account. The aggrieved father is a resident of Barkagaon Mission Road in the urban area and is a loco pilot on the railway. He is currently working in Hazaribagh. While there, the student studies in a prestigious school in the city. He has given the tenth board exam this year.
A friend of his son was informed that his father was robbed of all his hard-earned money. At first, the father could not believe the handiwork of the son. Later he complained about the withdrawal of money from his account in a cyber cell, then the whole matter came up in the investigation.
After investigation, when the son was strictly questioned, the whole truth was revealed. The son had been playing online games for three months. He had taken a mobile from his father in the name of studies, but instead of studying, he continued to play PUBG games on mobile.
Diamonds, dress and weapons purchases lost millions for the game’s character
To cross the stage of the PUBG game, the student bought diamonds, sophisticated weapons, expensive clothes with money. These clothes and weapons have to be purchased by the people playing PUBG for the character who plays on his behalf in the game. The student of 10th bought clothes, weapons, and diamonds worth five lakh 60 thousand rupees for his game. At the same time, for his friends, he gave weapons by recharging in a game of about one and a quarter lakh rupees and also gave about 20 thousand rupees in cash.
The bank officials were also shocked when they took the statement, 30 pages and four passbooks became full
In the investigation of a cyber cell, when the bank asked for complete information, four passbooks were filled for details of money. After this, the bank has given the complete expenditure details in about 30 pages. Since he played the game by doing legal recharges on PUBG, it did not fall under the category of cheating and no FIR could be lodged in the cyber cell.
The case was investigated. The student has wasted money playing games in a legal way. This will not be called fraud, but this topic is worrying. When giving mobiles to children, the family should monitor them. Amita Lakra, CCR DSP, Hazaribagh.
