WHAT IS BLUE WHALE?
It is an Internet game that consists of a series of dangerous tasks assigned to its players, for 50 days, with the final challenge being committing suicide. The game targets mostly teenagers and young adults who aspire to achieve something big. The dangerous tasks include waking up at 04.20 am, watching horror videos alone, inflicting self-injury, drawing picture of whale and then carving it onto their forearm or legs, climbing up the roof, crane etc., and encouraging them to tag their friends on social media so as to challenge them to participate in the game.
