Rescued Jodhpur girl tries to kill self again — Blue Whale challenge”

According to reports, the latest incident happened on Monday (5 September) night when the girl left home on the pretext of going to market. She was rushed to a private hospital and admitted to its ICU.

Tamil Nadu: A 19-year-old college student in Madurai, Tamil Nadu committed suicide by hanging himself.

Bhubaneswar: A day after rescuing a boy from the clutches of the "Blue Whale Challange Game", Odisha police on Wednesday issued guidelines for cops, parents, and teachers to combat the menace.

The teenager, whose father is an army man and mother a teacher, was playing this game with a group of 10-15 friends, she said. The victim said that he is now stable after several counselling sessions. Rupani said the state government may even bring an ordinance to ban the game in the state. Blue Whale is only a single troubling piece of a much more pervasive problem involving the internet and suicides. The things (culture) coming from the west are unsafe.

Referring to the incidents in the Union Territory, he said the woman bank employee, a proficient sportsperson, was saved when she was in advanced stage of playing the game. An investigation is underway, said the police officer. The maximum number of suicide cases have been reported from Russian Federation, and in India a couple of cases have been suspected. The Blue Whale Challenge dares players to kill themselves as the final part of the 50-odd tasks it asks participants to perform.

In last several days, that victim was given task every day after 2 am which included watching horror movies, clicking photos and visiting a graveyard during midnight.

The online game has exposed the vulnerability of children as online games may prove disastrous for them if the parents do not keep a tab on their Internet surfing, P K Upadhyay, district-inspector of schools, said. It is very important for the parents to communicate with their children and discuss what they are doing on their mobile phones and computers.

The NGO has also sought direction to the Cyber Cell to monitor if the game is pulled down from social media platforms.
