Nagpur Police appeals parents to safeguard kids from Momo Challenge

Nagpur Police, in a tweet, has appealed parents to safeguard their kids from the dangerous Momo Challenge, which reportedly like the Blue Whale Challenge encourages youngsters to commit suicide.

The tweet read: Momo suicide game risking your teens after #Bluewhale . The Momo game refers to an online challenge for which an avatar of a grotesque woman is being used. Pay close attention to your kid’s behavior and have open communication with them.

The Momo challenge is a viral suicide challenge, just like the Blue whale or the Slenderman Challenge. The challenge starts with a Whatsapp message daring people, mostly teenagers between the ages 13 and 19, to add the contact of a stranger called Momo. Momo is a social media account that uses the image of a doll with sinister features, large eyes and a wide mouth to create fear and curiosity in the minds of impressionable youngsters. Once contact is established, Momo sends a number of challenges and activities that are to be completed in order to meet her. Momo also threatens to leak personal information or harm family members if the person does not complete the task given. The last task is suicide, much like the Blue Whale Challenge.

The scary image is based on a doll by the name of ‘Mother Bird’ made by Japanese artist Midori Hayashi, who has no association with the challenge. Although, as per reports, the challenge has not reached India yet, it has been linked to the suicide of a 12-year-old girl in Argentina. Some cyber experts are calling the challenge fake and feel that it is a way to steal information and personal data.

The MLC member was present in the house during the proceedings of the legislative council. While the house was in session, Rathod was watching adult content on his smartphone.
However, he threw these charges under the bus and said, I was looking for materials for a question I wanted to ask the government in question hour.
?When I was looking for question material, I deleted too many messages as my phone storage was full. What the media has shown or seen, I don’t know. I would never do such things or see such things, he added.
This was not the first time in Karnataka that such an incident had happened.
