Nepal’s Supreme Court reverses national ban on PUBG

Nepal's Supreme Court has lifted a ban on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Several lawyers petitioned against the block, arguing the constitution affords Nepalis the freedom to play the battle royale and that the government would have to prove the ban is justified. According to The Himalayan Times, the court determined the ban would impact residents' freedoms and as such it couldn't stay in place.

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.
