Blue Whale Menace: Twin City Police Calls Awareness Meeting

Blue Whale Menace: Twin City Police Calls Awareness Meeting”

There was a Blue Whale scare at a Dwarka school here on Tuesday after a Class VI student was allegedly mistaken for a participant in the notorious online "suicide challenge" because of an image drawn on his arm with a sketch pen.

According to our correspondent, at least five youngsters, including a girl, from different districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have been admitted to Peshawar's Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) with symptoms of depression.

He further mentioned, we advise our readers to keep an eye on social media platforms and report to Pakistan's Cyber Crime cell if they come across groups that are spreading Blue Whale Game Challenges or ideology in Pakistan.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has issued a notice to the central government on a Public Interest Litigation ( PIL) seeking stay on the Blue Whale Challenge game.

The meeting assumes significance as students are the most vulnerable to the killer online game, which gives 50-day self harming tasks to perform. Usually, participants are given one task per day. "She was so depressed that she attempted to commit suicide", he said.

Two Russian girls, Yulia Konstantinova, 15, and Veronika "Nika" Volkova, 16 had also jumped from the roof of a 14- storey apartment block in the industrial Ust-Ilimsk area in Siberia.
