Garena Free Fire is undoubtedly one of the most popular battle royale video games in India right now. There are millions of people who play this massively popular game on a daily basis but nobody would have thought that it would lead to a murder of an 11-year old boy.
Yes, you read that right! An 11-year old boy has lost his life due to Free Fire. According to a YouTube video, A 20-year old boy (Aman) has killed an 11-year boy (Aakash) in Jharkhand for not transferring Diamonds in Free Fire. For the unversed, Diamond is an in-game currency in Free Fire, which can only be obtained through real money.
According to the YouTube Video, both Aman and Aakash live in the same locality. Notably, this news is yet to be covered by any newspaper or online media publication. We have only covered this news on the basis of the following YouTube video.
Notably, this is not the first and only incident that took place in India in which a minor girl or boy is killed due to an online game. In September last year, Police arrested 11-year old boy for killing a 10-year old girl from his neighborhood. The incident took place in Indore in Madhya Pradesh.
As per a report in India Times, the deceased was a Class V student and had left her home in the afternoon for plucking flowers. When she did not return home after a long time, her parents started searching for her.
After an extensive search, they found her body in a plot located near their house. According to the report, the accused crushed her head with a stone. When Police reached the crime spot, they arrested the 11-year old boy, who committed the crime.
Upon question, the boy confessed to killing the 9-year old innocent girl. When asked the reason, he revealed that she used to defeat him in Garena Free Fire. Since she defeats him in Free Fire, he got upset and had a grudge against the girl.
The boy who committed the crime sent to a child correctional home after the casework gets over.
