Bhubaneswar: The Twin City Commissionerate of Police on Friday issued an advisory for the parents to check if their kids fall prey to the Blue Whale Game or the Blue Whale Challenge.
The advisory issued by Commissioner YB Khurania has been stressed upon to install parental control softwares and effective firewalls. The advisory asks the parents to check history of the internet search engine, text messages, call log, social networking sites like Facebook, Whatsapp, Snapchat and others.
“Closely monitor kids to recognize changes in that may point out signs and symptoms of depression or any mental problem”, the advisory read.
The city cops also suggested the parents to have a candid discussion with their kids on the matter in a bid to know if they have heard about the game, or it is being spread in their schools.
The game allegedly consists of series of tasks assigned to players by the administrators during a period of 50 days with the final challenge requiring the player to commit suicide.
