The Blue Whale Challenge, reportedly created by a former convict in Russian Federation, is said to psychologically provoke players to indulge in daring, self-destructive tasks for 50 days before finally taking the "winning" step of killing themselves.

Ever since the game debuted, the suicide news among the teenagers and youth has been increasing with a growing speed.
