New Delhi, Sept 15: The Supreme Court on Friday sought the Centre’s response on a plea seeking a ban on the online Blue Whale game that has been blamed for a number of deaths of young people. A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice D Y Chandrachud sought the government’s response and asked the petitioner advocate, C R Jaya Sukin, to serve a copy of his petition on Attorney General K K Venugopal. The petitioner has sought that awareness should be created about the fatal consequences of the Blue Whale game. The Blue Whale Challenge, reportedly created by a former convict in Russia, is said to psychologically provoke players to indulge in daring, self-destructive tasks for 50 days before filly taking the “winning” step of killing themselves.
