Blue Whale Suicide Game - All You Need To Know

Something macabre has been brewing on the internet, and it sounds like the perfect plot for a third rate horror film.

 A depressed youngster comes across a social media group called Blue Whales.

The group encourages him to take his life.

It also promises to make his exit from this world fun by turning the suicide into a thrilling game.

 After signing up, the youngster is assigned daily tasks for the next 50 days. It includes inflicting self-injury, watching horror movies, waking up at odd hours to wrap the task and even carving a whale shape on the arms.

 The task keeps getting tougher with each passing day. On the last (50th day), the game admin ask the youngster to commit suicide.

Those who want to back out on the last day are threatened that their family members will be hurt if they don’t abide by the game rules. There is no exit.

It seems that the deadly game that originated in Russia has taken the life of a 14-year-old boy in Andheri East, Mumbai. Manpreet Singh, who jumped off the terrace of a seven-storey building on Saturday, could be the first victim of the network.

This psychopathic game started in Russia four years ago on a social networking site called VKontakte.

 It has already claimed over 130 lives in Russia.

It allegedly led to its first suicide in 2015. Philipp Budeikin, a psychology student claimed that he invented the game.

Budeikin, who was thrown out of his university, said he was attempting to weed out the society by encouraging those who have no value to take their lives.

 Other reports claim that the mastermind behind the game, a postman called Ilya Sidorov, 26, was arrested in Moscow, Russia.

He used to encourage teenagers to hurt themselves and eventually commit suicide.

What is worrying is that despite the common knowledge that the deadly game started and spread on VKontakte, which is a hugely popular site in Russia, no checks were brought in place to contain the network.

One can easily create a VKontakte account . And once you log in, and search for #bluewhale, you come across psychotic, extremely depressing messages of young people desperately wanting to play the game and end their lives.

 Their profiles are as macabre as it can get.

There are pictures of self-injury, ghosts and horrifying sketches of people bleeding and trying to kill themselves.
