Uttar Pradesh DGP, Sulkhan Singh, on Tuesday banned the deadly blue whale game across the state, expressing concern over the increasing number of suicides among children.

He said that the Union ministry of electronics and information technology, as well as Union home ministry, had directed the state governments to impose a blanket ban on the life-threatening game.

Internet giants like Facebook, Google Yahoo, Microsoft and the state governments have been directed to remove the game from social networking sites.

He also directed the police officials to take action against people who are promoting the game, create awareness among children and urge the parents to keep a watch on their children’s activities.

“The district police officers should contact schools and urge principals as well as teachers to impose a ban on the game. Along with counselling the children, the officers should initiate legal action against the administrator of the game. The officers should take the assistance of the social organizations in creating awareness among the children”, DGP said.
