Famous YouTuber and PUBG player Madhan OP, who was booked for uploading obscene content online and abusing women and minor children, has been arrested from a hideout in Dharmapuri by the cybercrime wing in Chennai a day after his wife's arrest from Salem.

Madhan Kumar, who started a channel in 2019 and has over 7 lakh subscribers on YouTube, uploaded videos showing tricks and tactics around the popular online battle royale PUBG. The matter apparently came to light when another YouTuber, named Jason Samuel, posted a two-hour long video explaining how Madhan targeted young girls and harassed them.

"While he plays he usually communicates with fellow gamers. He has uploaded hundreds of videos most of which have crossed over million views. On most of his videos, one can find him using derogatory language. Interestingly, this had got everyone's attention and several youngsters liked them," a police official was recently quoted as saying by a news agency.

The officer added, "Recently, while playing with teenage girls he had used derogatory words. We received several complaints from multiple contacts. Some have filed a complaint that whenever a girl texts him online through Instagram Madhan responds and builds contact and asks for money claiming that he is needed and later stops responding."
