KARAIKAL, PUDUCHERRY: A 22-year-old man rescued from the Blue Whale suicide challenge in Puducherry states the addictive game an “agonizing experience”. The victim recounts his horrific experience as a death trap that he could not disengage from even though he wanted to. Alexander of Neravy in the district, who was rescued yesterday by the police told reporters here that he chose to meet the media to explain the dangers involved in the game and to dissuade others from playing it.

Alexander revealed that he received a link to the Blue Whale Challenge game two weeks ago, on a WhatsApp group formed by his colleagues at a courier company.He indulged in the game when he visited his hometown Neravy on leave. So deep was his addiction that he never returned to Chennai to rejoin work.
It is not an app or a game. The Blue Whale admin customizes a link for individuals playing the game, so one cannot download it.

According to the reports the initial tasks of the game is to post personal details and photos . The Admin or  curator of the game assigns tasks to participants. The adventure enthusiasts then complete the challenge by 2 am every morning.
Alexander visited a graveyard at midnight – one of the most well-known dares in the 50-step game. “I went to the Akkaraivattam graveyard around midnight, took a selfie and posted it online. Every day I had to watch horror movies alone, as the idea was to make victims shun fear,” he said.

Alexander  mostly kept to himself and was socially dull while playing the precarious game.

Fortunately, his brother Ajith, who noticed behavioural changes in him informed the police, who visited his residence at 4 AM yesterday and rescued Alexander as he was about to draw the image of a fish with a knife on his arm. The final challenge – suicide – was not far at that point.
He claims to be “stable” after several counseling sessions and has appealed to fellow youths to never try the game.
Blue whale game has caused almost 5 deaths in India creating a panic among citizens.
The challenge is Russian in origin and is responsible for over 100 suicides worldwide.
