Police in the western Indian state of Gujarat detained 10 teenagers for breaking a newly announced ban on playing the online video game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) - the forerunner of global smash Fortnite.

Police Commissioner Manoj Agrawal told The Indian Express that playing PUBG is a bailable offence, and that the students were arrested in public places.
