A 13-year-old boy attempted suicide in Indore allegedly to complete the final task given to him while playing the infamous online game "Blue Whale challenge".

The incident took place in the Chameli Devi high school in district headquarters town of Indore.

Fortunately, his classmates who were quick to intervene saved his life after they noticed that he was leaning over the third-floor railing of the school.

Superintendent of Police Rupesh Kumar Dwivedi said,"Initial investigation suggests that the boy had been playing the Blue Whale game on his father's cellphone for the last couple of days".

Authorities in Indore and Pune claim to have rescued two students of class VII and IX from an alleged bid to complete a deadly online suicide dare, believed to be the "Blue Whale Challenge". The school principal, Sangeeta Podar, asserted that the boy's parents and the police were informed immediately after the incident. As for the home department, additional chief secretary K K Singh said the issue would be taken up "if a proposal comes before him from the director general of police".

The in-charge, Nilkanth Rathod, told mid-day, "I received a call from Solapur control that a 14-year-old boy playing the Blue Whale game was headed in my direction..." The logic Budeikin arrived at before inventing this game and killing little kids is that depressed people are biological waste and he is cleaning the world by making them commit suicide. Instructions are something like listening to death metal at 4 in the morning or cutting your wrist with a sharp object to draw the sign of blue whale on the forearm.

The online game, which originated in Russian Federation, starts by asking participants via social media to take self-harming tasks.

This is said to be the second case in India of a teenager taking the deadly challenge, which has claimed lives of more than hundred children.
