Madras High Court To Take Up Blue Whale Game After Madurai Teen's Suicide

A 19-year-old boy in Madurai committed suicide allegedly after playing Blue Whale Challenge.


Chennai:  The Madras High Court said it will take up the issue of 'Blue Whale' challenge on Monday, days after a teenager was found hanging in his room in Madurai.

Police suspect that the death of  Vignesh, 19, is linked to the dangerous and self-destroying game, that has claimed over 100 lives across the world.

Investigators say the second year commerce student at a private college was part of a Whatsapp group of 75 members who are playing the suicide game.

"Blue Whale - This is not a game but danger. Once you enter, you can never exit," Vignesh wrote in a chilling note found in his home in Madurai on Wednesday. He was addicted to his mobile, according to his brother and other family members.

When a lawyer told the Madurai bench of Madras High Court that he plans to file a petition, the court expressed concern and announced that it will take up the matter own its own.

The Chennai police has issued an advisory for parents to keep a tab on the social media activities of their children. On Thursday, the Madurai Collector announced special cells to raise awareness about Blue Whale Challenge in colleges.
