BLUE WHALE

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES NATION -

The ad­vi­sory, which was is­sued by the min­istry of elec­tron­ics & IT, also ad­vises guardians not to talk about the game “un­less there is rea­son to be­lieve your child al­ready knows of or has played the game”, as dis­cussing it may “in­crease the chance that your child will search for it on their own”.

“Blue whale game is abet­ment to sui­cide. It is un­der­stood through var­i­ous in­ter­net re­ports that it is shared among se­cre­tive groups on so­cial me­dia net­works. The cre­ators seek out their play­ers/vic­tims who are in de­pres­sion and send them an in­vi­ta­tion to join,” said the ad­vi­sory dated Septem­ber 13. The ad­vi­sory has strongly sug­gested that guardians be at­ten­tive if they no­tice un­usu­ally se­cre­tive be­hav­iour, mostly re­lated to the on­line ac­tiv­ity of their child.
