The deadly online game Blue Whale Challenge has claimed lives of more than 10 people in India and over 120 worldwide.
The 22-year-old Russian creator of the Blue Whale game Philipp Budeikin is in jail but his horrific idea is still threatening and inciting youths to kill themselves.
In the latest incident, three teenagers in Madhya Pradesh’s Dewas have been threatened by an anonymous user saying “Annabelle (A Raggedy Ann doll alleged by demonologists to be haunted) will kill your friend. Play the Blue Whale game to save.”
The teenagers of Dewas are students of a prestigious school in Indore, they are being threatened that if they don’t play the game Annabelle will kill their friends in few weeks.
On September 4, one of the students received a message from the mobile no. 9754885564, saying "imagine you're ABC and me the Annabelle."
Next day, another message from the same no. said, “Don’t take me lightly, I know you are three friends. One of your friends will be killed in few weeks. If you want to save your friend, play the new Blue Whale game.”
The scared student told this to his friends and parents. The family of a teenager, who was being threatened, complained to the Superintendent of Police.
Anshuman Singh, Superintendent of Police said the matter is being investigated and families should take care of their children.
