South Korean game developer Krafton says it has banned a huge number of accounts on its new PUBG Mobile India game version, which is Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). Krafton says that it has banned 25 lakh accounts of BGMI players in the last month. And what was the reason for wielding the ban axe on BGMI players? PUBG Mobile game developer Krafton said that it removed these accounts over cheating allegations and said that it has cleaned out most of the cheaters in the game.

“Cheaters have no place in BGMI and in order to provide a fair gameplay environment to our players, we've been taking severe measures to remove cheaters from the game," Krafton said in a statement. Previously, at the end of September, PUBG Mobile developer Krafton said that fair gameplay always has been the priority and will always be so.

Krafton has been uncompromising in its approach to ensure a fair playing field for all players and that means disciplining the wrongdoers. This is not the first time that Krafton has removed accounts over cheating allegations. Earlier, Krafton banned about 88,000 accounts in a week in October, and 1,40,000 accounts in September. Now, it says that they had worked on the model that the offenders will be banned for a temporary period, but now Krafton shifted all ban to permanent account removing. “There's no room for a second chance now.”
