Islamabad: The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) said on Monday that the Battlefield Unknown (PUBG) for online gamers will remain blocked in the country until an investigation into a suicide case related to the game is completed.
In a brief introduction to the Congressional Information Technology Standing Committee meeting, PTA website DG stated that the court has not ordered the lifting of the ban on PUBG.
In response to a question, the Director General stated that PTA blocked more than 14,000 proxy sites to ensure that online games are prohibited. He said they hope to include PUBG into the regulatory framework.
Earlier on July 24, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) lifted the ban on the online game “Unknown Player” battlefield.
The High Court of Islamabad retained its ruling on a petition to revoke the suspension of the popular online game PUBG.
Justice Amir Farooq announced the decision to lift the ban when he heard a petition against the game ban.
Earlier in the day, the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) made it clear that it prohibits the continued implementation of the online gaming (PUBG) ban in the country.
