All about Blue Whale Game: Guidelines for Children, Parents & Guardians

by Legal DesireAugust 23, 2017

The Blue Whale challenge is an online game. The game is named so because sometimes whales beach themselves intentionally and die. In this game, an online administrator assigns tasks to its participants. The participants are given a period of 50 days to complete each task. The players are expected to take photos of them undertaking the challenge and upload them as proofs for the curator’s approval. The last challenge is to commit suicide.

Players of this game cannot stop playing because they are blackmailed and cyber bullied into completing the game. This deadly game has spread all over the globe, and in India there have been reports of children harming themselves and in a few cases even committing suicides, which are allegedly linked to Blue Whale Challenge. More than six children across India in the age group of 12-19 years have taken their lives allegedly playing this game within a span of two weeks.
