Blue Whale Game, a National Issue; SC asks DD, PVT Channel to Broadcast Awareness Programme

The Supreme Court of India said on Friday that the Blue Whale game is a national problem.  The apex court said this during a hearing on the petition filed for banning this infamous deadly game.

Taking note of the serious impact of this challenging game, the court has directed the service broadcaster Doordarshan and other private channels to generate awareness about the game by telecasting its hazards in their prime time programme.  

The Centre in its reply told SC that it has set up an expert committee to look into the issue and file a report within three weeks.

The order was passed by a Bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud in a petition filed by advocate Sneha Kalita, who blamed the game for 100 suicides throughout the country in recent times.

Earlier on September 15, the apex court had issued a notice to the Centre in connection with a petition seeking a complete ban on the Blue Whale Challenge.

The deadly Blue Whale game is an online game that challenges players for over 50 days, demanding them to complete tasks given by an anonymous controller.
