The Bangladesh telecom regulator has blocked online multiplayer game Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) at the request of cyber security police following complaints by parents of adolescent players.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Cyber Security and Crime Division requested the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) to block access to the online game from the country last week, reports bdnews24.com.

“We did it following complaints made by guardians and different other quarters for quite some time,” said the police department’s Deputy Commissioner AFM Al Kibria on Friday evening.

“This game cannot be played from Bangladesh from now on,” he added.
