India bans 118 more mobile apps including PUBG

New Delhi: India on Wednesday banned more than 100 mobile applications including the hugely popular mobile game PUBG, after banning 59 Chinese apps in the first round earlier.

The apps were banned citing concerns of data security after fresh tensions between India and China in the border area in eastern Ladakh.

A total of 118 apps have been banned by the ministry of information and technology, according to an official statement.

The banned mobile applications are prejudicial to the sovereignty, integrity, defence of India and public order, the ministry said. Asianet Online
