New Delhi, Feb 19: In a shocking case of staying indoors and lack of physical activity, two teenage brothers have become victims of video-game addiction.
As per a report published in TOI, two brothers aged-- 22 and 19, were so addicted to video games, that they had to undergo rehabilitation in the psychiatry ward of Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in Delhi, for a month.
The elder boy is doing engineering and his younger brother is in Class 12th. Both of them were so hooked to gaming consoles, that they forgot to take meals, do their studies or even bathe. Thus both became physically dysfunctional, in a period of two years. [Too much gaming makes kids obese, aggressive, violent: Survey]
