‘Blue Whale’ drives 15-year-old to commit suicide

West Bengal State, India (Web Desk): An Indian teenager has supposedly committed suicide after playing the online Blue Whale game that forces young people into killing themselves.

Ankan Dey, 14, from the town of Anandpur, West Bengal State, India, was found suffocated by a plastic bag in his bathroom.

He was discovered by his family who grew suspicious when he did not come out after his bath.
