The Dubai based organisation has benched Mohammed 'Owais' Lakhani, Hemanth 'Ultron' Sethi, and, Yogesh 'RoXX' Yadav due to multiple instances of 'insubordination, unprofessional conduct, breach of contract and failure to comply with Galaxy Racer’s protocols and policies', as per a statement. Another GXR player Harshit 'MJ' Mahajan will continue to be on the roster.
Previously, Pratik ‘Aurum’ Mehta, who was the coach of the BGMI roster of GXR India, was suspended after allegations made against him. Although none of the reasons for the allegations was disclosed by Galaxy Racer India on 7th September. In the previous investigation, the organization hadn't found any concrete evidence against the coaching staff or the team.
