Galaxy Racer India has taken a decision to bench RoXX, Ultron, Owais from its active BGMI roster indefinitely due to several reasons, with immediate effect.
The three players are still under contract with Galaxy Racer but will not be a part of any active roster.
MaxKasH is still inactive due to medical conditions, which leaves MJ as the only player on their active BGMI roster.

The UAE-based esports organization Galaxy Racer (GXR) which operates a Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) roster in India has taken a tough decision of benching three players from their active roster indefinitely.

Yogesh "RoXX" Yadav, Hemanth "Ultron" Sethi, and Mohammed "Owais" Owais Lakhani are the BGMI players that were benched earlier today on 16th September, for multiple reasons as listed out by the organization in a public post.

The three players are still under contract with GXR India but will not be part of any active roster. This means that the players are still part of the organization but will not be competing in any matches going ahead, until their contract comes to an end or GXR India revokes its decision.

Galaxy Racer takes action against several BGMI players belonging to their Indian roster

GXR India has publicly announced that three of their BGMI players - RoXX, Ultron, and Owais, have been indefinitely benched with immediate effect due to the following reasons,

  • Multiple instances of insubordination.

  • Unprofessional conduct.

  • Breach of contract.

  • Failure to comply with Galaxy Racer's protocols and policies.

The organization further informed that Akash "MaxKasH" Anandani was still inactive due to medical conditions, which has left Harshit "MJ" Mahajan as the only player on their active BGMI roster. He will continue being on the team's active roster while also being under contract with the organization.

GXR India's public statement concluded with them claiming that further announcements on the situation will be made in due time.

RoXX declined to comment on the situation when AFK Gaming reached out to him. AFK Gaming has also reached out to the other players involved in this matter and will include their statements regarding this, if and when we receive a response.

This announcement comes barely a week after GXR India had concluded an internal investigation against its performance and management staff, stating that appropriate legal action will not be taken against them as no concrete evidence was found to prove the allegations. As a matter of fact, the nature of these allegations were not disclosed publicly by GXR India.

Galaxy Racer's statement on allegations against staff

GXR India had signed this very BGMI roster just last month in August, of which some members are also part of their ex-PUBG Mobile roster. But the roster seems to have collapsed due to unknown reasons, as the organization chooses not to come forward with any explanation justifying their decisions publicly at this point in time.
