SC calls Blue Whale Game Challenge a 'National Problem'


New Delhi, Oct 27: The Supreme Court on Friday directed national broadcaster Doordarshan to prepare a programme on the 'evil impact' of online game Blue Whale Challenge and telecast it during prime time. The apex court said the programme must be telecast by private television channels as well.

The court was hearing a petition filed by a 73-year-old Chennai advocate NS Ponnaiah who has blamed the game for 100 suicides throughout the country in recent times. The Centre, meanwhile, informed the apex court that it has set up an expert committee to look into the issue and will file a report on the matter within three weeks.
