The Blue Whale Challenge had claimed many young lives.
Reports say the game, which targets depressed teenagers, has its origin in Russia. It asks the participants to do a series of tasks, including watching a horror movie alone at midnight. The online game also requires challengers to take pictures as proof of completion of their task.
The last step of the game is to take one’s own life and document the final act in the form of photos or videos. It is said that the challenge started some four or five years ago in Russia.
