Nepal’s Supreme Court has stayed the government ban on mobile game PUBG.

According to the Himalayan Times, the court observed that PUBG was a game meant for entertainment. Several lawyers petitioned the country’s top court against the ban, arguing that it was against the constitution.

The court will be examining whether the ban is justified.

Earlier this month, the nation’s federal investigation agency asked the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA) to make sure ISPs and mobile providers blocked the game. An NTA official claimed parents were worried kids were neglecting their studies and getting addicted to PUBG.
