THE SHOCKING GAME – (“СИНИЙ КИТ”) GOES BY A FEW NAMES:

The government has banned the Blue Whale Challenge online game, which has led teenagers to commit suicide. But, the game is already available under other names like ‘A Silent House’, ‘A Sea of Whales’ and ‘Wake Me Up at 4:20 AM’. Computer security experts and child psychologists suggest strict action, monitoring and use of existing provisions to make operators such as Google, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Microsoft and Yahoo more accountable and responsible.
By letter dated August 11, 2017, the government ordered the Internet majors to immediately remove the links from the dangerous online game. The letter from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (Meity) to the Internet Elders gives instructions on the Internet and social platforms after the law and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said an official source. The White Whale Challenge is a suicide game in which the player receives certain tasks to perform for a period of 50 days and the final task is to kill himself. The player is also invited to share photos after completing the challenge.
“Cert-In should proactively track these games and make a list that should be made available to the Internet and social networks to block it,” says Sahil Bagla, an IT security expert. Taking advantage of the availability of a deadly game on the Internet, Meity said: “It is understood that a game manager uses a social media platform to invite/entice children to play this game, which could possibly cause them to take extreme measures to inflict injuries, including suicide. ”
“The Information Technology Act of India has sufficient powers for intermediaries such as Google and Facebook to avoid hosting these links on their site, which requires political will, is essential,” explains Pawan Duggal, a cyber law expert. India, too, a number of dead were supposedly linked to this game. More than legal, psychologists suggest a greater indulgence of parents to deal with dangerous online games. “More parental observation, especially with children involved in online games, is critical,” says Ajay Sharma, a child psychologist.
