Blue Whale Game: Attention Parents! Watch Your Teen, this Lethal Game Impels to Commit Suicide

New Delhi, August 25, 2017: As the communication becomes accessible with social media, the human race has become more indulgent in extremist activities inciting people to indulge in self-harm.

The Blue Whale is a lethal game that involves brainwashing weak teenagers over a stretch of 50 days, prompting them to take up deadliest tasks varying from watching horror flicks to inflicting self-harm. Finally, on the 50th day, the players are challenged to commit suicide after being exhausted physically and mentally.

The game was started in 2013 by Phillip Buddeikin, a Russian Psychology student and was jailed in 2016. According to him, the victims were ‘biological waste’ and that they were happy to die, whereas he was, in fact, cleansing the society, mentioned Daily Mail report.

Buddeikin attracted teenagers by posting scary pictures and videos on various groups and platforms. He then taped people religiously following his posts and asked them to join a closed group. He skimmed the most depressed people and lured them for the lethal game. People soon fell for the peer pressure to complete the tasks.

The tedious tasks include: Carve F57 on your skin, Wake up at 4:20 AM and go to the roof, Carve a whale with a razor on your skin, Don’t speak to anyone for an entire day, listen to depressing music, climb on a crane and ultimately commit suicide.

The killer game seems to have been arrived in India now, and the government has asked Facebook, Google, Yahoo, WhatsApp, and other social media platforms to remove links to the suicide game.

Maneka Gandhi, Women and Child Development Minister has requested parents to deter their children from playing such games.

What impelled the kids to watch this horrific game?

The blue whale game targetted socially depressed teenagers as they were the easy targets. At the commencement of the game, the moderator asks for the personal information, which was later used to threaten players if they asked to leave the game. These kids were groomed and manipulated to perpetrate such horrendous tasks.

You can watch for under mentioned change of behavior to ensure that your teen is not succumbing to the deadly game:

Being extra secretive

Not connecting socially

Spending too much time on social media

Wandering alone at night or unusual places

Look for self-harm injuries
