Although initially, Apple and the Government were quiet about the reason for the ban, Google revealed it removed BGMI from the Play Store because of a government directive. 

Now, for confidentiality, the exact details were still not being spilled. But as per sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters that BGMI got pulled off the stores as per Section 69A of the Indian IT Law.
