In Jaipur, a 16 year boy who was involved playing the notorious Blue whale challenge game and left home was rescued by the Mumbai Police. He had left Jaipur by train and reached Mumbai the next day. He was tracked by the location of his mobile phone to Mumbai’s Church gate area. A knife was recovered from his possession. He confessed that he was in the last stage of the game and would have committed suicide according to the challenge given to him. The boy was rescued and handed over to his family members.
Inspite of all the media coverage and police warnings the Blue Whale challenge seems to have spread amongst the youth in India far and wide. School authorities and parents need to be very vigilant.
