The gaming addict boy from Punjab who secretly spent Rs 16 lakh of his parents' money on the battle royale mobile game PlayerUnknown's Battleground or PUBG is being made to work at a scooter repair shop.

While gamers have been known to go to great lengths to prove their love for PUBG, the teen gaming addict from Punjab's Kharar took the craze for the mobile game to another level after he spent Rs 16 lakhs from his father's account to buy virtual ammunition in the game.

The 17-year-old would take his father's mobile phone on the pretext of online classes, but would access his father's bank accounts to make in-app purchases for him and his friends.

It was after receiving bank statements that his parents got to know about it. His father, a bank employee posted in another city, had been saving the money for his health treatment.

Subsequent to getting some answers concerning his child's twofold dealings, the dad has chosen to make the kid work at a bike mechanics shop to show him the estimation of hard-earned cash. 

"I can't let him sit inactive at home and can't give him a cell phone in any event, for considering," the dad revealed to The Tribune. "He is working at a bike mechanics shop with the goal that he understands that it is so difficult to acquire cash," 

The dad further included that he was miserable now since all the cash that he had spared for his own social insurance as well as his child's future was presently gone.

As per the report, the boy secretly took out money to the tune of Rs 16 lakh including Rs 2 lakh which he withdrew from his mother's PF account. He was also in the habit of shuffling money between his his, his mothers' and fathers' account so that they would not find out.
