Several posts on social media platforms were circulated last week which claimed that a student of a leading school had committed suicide as part of the challenge. Though efforts to corroborate the reports deemed futile, child protection authorities have already commenced investigating the reports.

When contacted, the police also stated that they had not received any information on such incidents.
