26 Aug 2018

It is alleged that the Momo Challenge’’ has claimed lives of two persons at Kurseong in Darjeeling district -- Manish Sarki (18) on August 20 and Aditi Goyal (26) the next day. Police suspect that both of them were into the online killer game which led them to take the ultimate step.
Alarmed by the recent reports, the state administration has started taking precautionary steps to combat the threat. Besides sending directives to police stations in the districts, the administration has also asked educational institutes to keep a tab on the behavioural pattern of students, an official told PTI. The killer 'game' features a creepy image of a girl with distorted face and eyes bulging out called the "Mother Bird by Link Factory".
