INDIA: PUBG addict beheads father for not letting him play game


In a bizarre incident from Karnataka, India, a 21-year-old beheaded his father for stopping him from playing popular online game PUBG.

Raghuveer Kumbar, a diploma course dropout from Kakati village in Belgavi district, spent most of his time playing the online game. 

His father, Shankrappa Kumbar, 55, who recently retired from the police department, had objected to his addiction on multiple occasions.

On Sunday night, Shankrappa took away Raghuveer's mobile phone after refusing him more money for internet pack to play the game.

Next day early morning, Raghuveer locked the door to the room where the rest of the family was sleeping and attacked his father with a machete, chopping off his head and legs.

He then took the phone and fled from the scene. The family members alerted the police in the morning. 

Raghuveer was arrested by Katki Police on Monday afternoon and confessed to killing his father.

He has been booked for murder.
