The game has been removed as a precautionary measure, and a complete ban may follow.

 A senior government official told News18, “This application contains malicious code and is being used to compromise user data for camera and microphone surveillance, location tracking, and malicious network activity.” Our analysis also showed that we have obtained various important rights that could be exploited.”
