A PIL filed by I Mohammed Razvi of Madurai, came up for hearing before a division bench of N Kirubakaran and B Pugalendhi. The petitioner claimed that post lockdown, many parents were worried about their children’s disturbed sleep pattern, refusal to eat, thanks to them being hooked to online games. They have also started revolting when confronted by the parents. Gaming disorder could be better treated in the early stages and it’s important to monitor children, the bench said. Hence the petitioner sought the bench to grant interim direction directing respondents to take action against online gaming groups, websites and social network. Besides, Muthukumar, an advocate from Madurai in a petition sought to impose a ban on online rummy.
