In what is suspected to be yet another casualty in the "Blue Whale Game" challenge, a 14-year-old boy committed suicide by hanging himself at his house in Keshpur in Bengal's West Midnapore district on Saturday morning. "The principal was taken aback when he named the game was Blue Whale", said the official of the school in Dehradun's posh Dalanwala locality.
Summary: This is the first incident of someone addicted to blue whale game reported from Dehradun.
A 14-year-old Ankan covered his head with a plastic bag and tied it tightly around his neck with a nylon cord. In the game players are asked to draw a whale image on a piece of paper, then as a challenge, they were asked to draw the same design on their hand, and by drawing means craving with a knife after all this hey then given tasks like watch horror movies alone etc. When his mother called him to eat his lunch he denied and said he will bath first then eat. "We rushed him to the hospital where he was declared dead", Gopinath Dey, Ankan's father, was quoted as saying by News 18. More than 130 kids around the world have fallen prey to the online game. A day after TOI highlighted how the authorities are callous about the risk to children from such games, the police posted messages on social network platforms and on their website, urging parents and children to stay away from the game. But still many have come in contact with this online game.
