In yet another PUBG related case, a 27-year-old man stabbed his sister’s fiance after a clash over the virtual game. He man was arrested on Friday for allegedly trying to kill his brother-in-law in Mumbai because his cellphone did not have enough charge to play a game.
The incident happened on February 7 but a case of attempt to murder was registered by Kolshewadi police in Maharashtra’s Thane district on Thursday.
According to the police, 32-year-old Om Chandrakishor Bavdankar, who lives in Ambernath, had recently got engaged to a girl who lives in Kalyan. On February 6, Om reached Kalyan to meet her at her house. After dinner, Om started working on a laptop. Post midnight, the fiance’s brother Rajnish Rajbhar (27-year-old) returned home.
Rajbhar had apparently been playing a PUBG game online on his mobile which had now run out of charge. Not wanting to lag behind on the levels of the game, Rajnish Rajbhar frantically searched for his mobile charger but found that its wire had been damaged. He also allegedly kicked the family’s dog in anger.
In a fit of rage, Rajnish then fetched a knife from the kitchen and cut the wire of his sister’s laptop charger. Seeing this, Om Bavdankar intervened and questioned Rajnish’s actions. “Why did you cut the laptop-charger-wire? I would have brought you a new charger. Your parents opened a mobile shop for you and you are always playing a mobile game in the night and sleeping in the day. How will you run the business?” Om reportedly asked Rajnish.
After that, Rajnish became more violent and allegedly stabbed his sister’s fiance Om with a knife.
On was rushed to thehospital and a case was lodged against Rajbhar.
