Yet it cannot be banned really as several people claim that there are no specific links to play this game and it is not publicly available to be downloaded.

The Blue Whale Challenge is played by a person by following instructions from “curators” of the game. Some curators intentionally send the tasks via social media by targeting teenagers. Moreover, it is prevalent and is being distributed among the groups secretly with a different name. Hence, banning the game is not as easy as it seems.
