The child was in so much depression that he committed suicide. Importantly, about 50 different tasks available in the online blue Whale game played online. After completing the task, you have to mark your hand, which is completed in 50 days and becomes the size of the whale, after which the game has to be sacrificed in the final task to become the winner.

This is the first case of death due to this bloody game in India. But, there is no information available about whether this game was banned or not yet in that country.

Keep an eye on the habits of your Children
All this will be truly childishly said that when a person plays a game, it is so lost in it that he does not have an idea about the things that happen around him. In this case, the need to keep an eye on the habits and behavior of children, who are engaged in the day-to-day life of the Internet and the mobile, is required. Considered smartphones are an integral part of our lives and gaming is not a bad thing in the free time, but during gaming, you can put the problem in trouble. Especially for children, such problems will be called very sensitive.
