India bans PUBG, 117 other apps as it takes aim at China tech

BENGALURU: India has banned another 118 mostly Chinese mobile apps including Tencent Holdings Ltd’s popular videogame PUBG, citing data security concerns, according to a government statement on Wednesday.

In June, India banned 59 mobile apps including Bytedance’s TikTok, Alibaba’s UC Browser and Tencent’s WeChat, also citing security concerns.

The latest ban comes a day after India’s foreign ministry accused Chinese troops of taking “provocative actions” at the disputed Himalayan mountain border.
