New Delhi:

Deadly Blue Whale game has claimed one more life as a 25-year-old man from Haryana’s Sirsa district allegedly committed suicide after playing one of the most dangerous games across the world.

Yogesh aka Jimmy Singla drowned in a river on Thursday. It was first considered as a normal death but after three days, his family members claimed that he died because of the Blue Whale game.

The relatives on Sunday claimed that Yogesh had completed three tasks of the deadly game and entered the fourth one after which he decided to end his life.

On Friday, the Supreme Court had recognised the game as a national problem.

In a direction issued by the apex court, it had said that both the national broadcaster i.e. Doordarshan and other private news media channels must create awareness about the game by telecasting its hazards.
