Ajay Kumar attempting to jump off the Windsor Manor Bridge on Sunday.
BENGALURU: The 28-year-old MBA student Ajay Kumar, a suspected victim of the notorious Blue Whale challenge, who was rescued by the High Grounds police when he was trying to commit suicide by jumping off the ITC Windsor Manor bridge on Sunday, is said to be mentally unstable and is asking for a mobile phone to play the game.
Kumar, who is undergoing treatment at Nimhans, is asking the police to let his parents know that he needs an iPhone to play the game.
Kumar did not reveal anything about the Blue Whale challenge, though injury marks similar to that of found on people committing suicide after playing the challenge were found on his body, but has told the police that he was under pressure.
"He is not clear in his replies. He says that his friend who stays at a room at Vijayanagar in Mysuru will give all the information, but he is quiet when asked about the kind of information that would be revealed by his friend. He did not eat or sleep the entire night on Sunday and kept screaming and crying. Kumar has injury marks all over his body," a police source said.
The police will start investigation into the case once Kumar’s parents arrive in the city on Monday.
They are also planning to visit the room in Mysuru where Kumar stayed with his friend.
The police have so far not confirmed the Blue Whale angle, but have not ruled out the possibility either.
