The government had described him as an instigator of suicide.

The Indian government wanted to ban the ‘Blue Whale Challenge’ several years ago, but instead issued an advisory and abandoned it. The Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, in an advisory issued in 2017, a year after the game’s launch, had said that the Blue Whale game (suicide game) is an incitement to suicide. So stay away from it. There were several deaths from the Blue Whale Challenge in Russia between 2015 and 2017.
