BENGALURU, Sept 2 (Reuters) - 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. (Reporting by Philip George and Chandini Monnappa in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
