The government told the court that a group of experts are examining the Blue Whale problem and are expected to come up with a way of tackling it.
The online suicide game has been linked to at least six child suicides in the past few months, which prompted a concerned government to write to internet majors to remove links that draw users to the Blue Whale challenge.
In the macabre game that has been blamed for over 100 deaths across the world, a player is given dark tasks to complete over a period of 50 days, ranging from self-harm and cutting oneself to spending the night at a graveyard and watching horror movies alone. The final task is to commit suicide or kill someone close.
Many state governments and schools put out a list of guidelines to raise awareness about the twisted game and also urged parents to keep a strict check on their children's online activities.
