Madurai sources have stated that a 19 year old college student from Thirumangalam Vignesh committed suicide by hanging himself on Wednesday. Vignesh was a second year student at Mannar College in Madurai. He was found hanging around 4:15 pm. Meanwhile the police had confirmed the image of a whale carved on Vignesh's left forearm with a blade and the words "Blue Whale" were written beneath it.



Sources have stated that a note was also recovered from the spot which said, "Blue Whale- This is not a game but danger. Once you enter, you can never exit". Meanwhile Vignesh's friends told the police that they saw him attempting the Blue Whale Challenge on his phone. Since there are no applications or website for the challenge, friends would have meant they saw Vignesh using his phone more than usual because the challenge involves conversing with a curator over messages, or sometimes, calls.

Furthermore Tamilnadu Police had recently released circular asking parents to keep an eye for children attempting the Blue Whale Challenge on the computer or their phones and to monitor their behavior.

About the author

I describe myself with the word peculiar because I think in different ways than what other people usually think and I consider myself a cheerful and optimist girl, I usually have a positive attitude facing life. Academically I'm interested in writing specifically news and short stories. I'd like to revolve around writing which I fondly called The art of words. I have found enjoyment in reading and solving puzzles too.
