ISLAMABAD: The Blue Whale Challenge has reportedly struck Pakistani teenagers as several have admitted to suffer from severe depression after playing the macabre online game, the health authorities said.

At least five teenagers, including a girl, from different districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have been admitted to Peshawar`s Khyber Teaching Hospital with symptoms of depression.

"The teens opted to play the game but as it proceeded, the given tasks became increasingly strange such as being asked the participants to carve a whale into their arm, which prompted them to stop and seek medical help.

"The female victim was so depressed that she attempted suicide," he said.
