THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has expressed concern over the online game ‘Blue Whale’ which is driving children to death. In a Facebook post, Pinarayi cautioned that like ‘Blue Whale’, there are many online games such as ‘A Silent House’, ‘A Sea of Whales’, and ‘Wake Me Up at 4.20 AM’ which have been in vogue among youngsters over the past many years.
The Chief Minister also shared a Facebook post by a mother who wrote about her son’s death in 2006, reportedly after playing an online game. “Even though the internet helps people connect with each other and makes life easier, the dangers posed by such traps are immense. While banning such games under law is important, adequate awareness against them should also be created,” Pinarayi said.
