Solapur boy suspected of playing Blue Whale game saved just in time

A class 7 student from Indore on Thursday tried to commit suicide apparently by taking up the infamous Blue Whale Challenge

He was quite irritated when stopped from completing the challenge, say sources.

The class VII boy from Indore, who tried to commit suicide in a deadly Blue Whale Challenge had been writing about the whole 50 stages of the game in his school diary.

The incident took place in a school in Madhya Pradesh's Indore.

However, before he could have jumped off from the railing, physical training teacher of the school Sheikh Mohommad Farukh at the nick of time rushed towards him and pulled him away from the railing.

The students informed their teachers, who then approached the police. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said the state police had issued necessary alerts to make parents vigilant about the game. However, some gaming experts doubt if the latest incident is related to the Blue Whale challenge.
