The blue whale game based in Russia is said to be an online group that is encouraging people, especially teenagers, to kill themselves.
It is a 50-day game where the members are assigned different over this period of time with the last task being committing suicide. These tasks start with minor self-harming, watching recommended horror movies, sleeping and waking up and unusual hours and get more extreme with the passage of time.
On the 50th day and after completing all the tasks, the members are asked the by the controller to do one final thing, commit suicide.
police are spotting a number suicides all over Russia but haven’t been able to link it with the blue whale game.
A local Russian newspaper reported; ‘We have counted 130 suicides of children that took place between November 2015 to April 2016. Almost all of these kinds were a member of this group and lived in happy families.’
There are a number of tragic suicides which point in the direction of the blue whale game.
Veronika, 16, and Yulia, 15, jumped off a 14-storey high apartment block. A 14-year-old girl, Chita, threw herself in front of a commuter train. Yulia,15, jumped off a 14-storey building with her friend
In some cases, help got there on time and the suicides were made unsuccessful.
Police and government are taking steps to stop this ‘game of death’ by interrogating the potential members and putting a 4-year sentence if anybody was caught “promoting” the website.
Social media account such as Instagram also started a warning dialogue box to the people searching for similar keywords.
How obvious it may be, nobody has yet found a prove or the culprits behind this sinister game. The blue whale suicidal game, which exists and at the same time remains a mystery.
