Odisha police have rescued an engineering student, who allegedly completed a quarter of the deadliest Blue Whale suicide game stages. The young boy who hails from Keonjhar, is a student of a private engineering college in Odisha.

According to Cuttack DCP Akhileshwar Singh, the boy has been saved and handed over to the parents after counseling, but he is in a depressed state.

Police sources revealed that he has already completed 10 levels of the Blue whale suicide game.

The student was staying in a rented house in CDA area under Market Nagar police limits. Neighbours informed Twin City Commissionerate Police as they found him in a depressed state.

Originated from Russia, the blue whale suicide game has killed over 100 young people across the world.

Due to a surge in the cases of Blue Whale game, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has instructed the schools to prohibit the use of a smartphone in institutions and buses.
