Commissionerate Police issues advisory for parents — Blue Whale game

Parth Singh, 13, was found hanging in his bedroom in Maudaha village last night.

Police officials said that the mobile phone would be sent to the experts for examination to ascertain if it had Blue Whale game.

Parth's father Vikram Singh said that his son had been addicted to the fatal online game and was often seen playing the same.

According to the family, Parth had been playing the Blue Whale game for the past few days.

The development comes close on the heels of the government directing internet majors Google, Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Microsoft and Yahoo to immediately remove the links of unsafe online game Blue Whale Challenge, which has led to suicide of children in India and other countries.

Abhishek Yadav, Maudaha circle officer, said the suicide seems to have been a result of the Blue Whale game and further investigation into the matter is underway.

He said that on Sunday evening Parth Singh was busy on the mobile phone, and suddenly went into his room and locked the door from inside. The game has already claimed many lives across the world. However, much to everyone's relief, a third year engineering student from West Bengal was saved from the clutches of the Blue Whale challenge.

The Blue Whale Game, better known as "Blue Whale Challenge", is an Internet game that is claimed to exist in several countries.

The game allegedly consists of series of tasks assigned to players by the administrators during a period of 50 days with the final challenge requiring the player to commit suicide.
