In a heroic act, a teacher of Guru Gobind Singh Public School (GGPS) in Bokaro saved the life of a Class 7 student as he caught her before touching the ground on her suicidal bid to jump off the third floor of the school building. The teacher, named, Anil Kumar got severe head injuries and his situation is said to be critical.
Although friends and classmates of the students doubted that the girl was possibly a victim of the ‘Blue Whale Game’, parents of the kid alleged foul play by school authorities. “A Class 7 ‘F’ student of GGPS, Bokaro Steel City, Sector 5, jumped from the third floor of her school building, as if she had completed all the tasks of the Blue Whale Game and the last one was jumping off from third floor,” said Rajesh a classmate of the girl, who was one among the eyewitness. It must be mentioned here that the impact of Blue Whale game has been very disastrous for children and it has so far taken a number of lives across India. It is the need of the hour for parents and teachers as well to keep a close watch on kids’ activities.

I shouted and tried to stop her,” said Puja another eyewitness. “Suddenly, our drawing teacher Anil Sir heard the alarm call and rushed ther. He also tried to stop her but she did not pay any heed and jumped down,” Puja added.
“We all shocked, but Anil sir did not get nervous and caught her in his lap. After rescuing her, sir got senseless and immediately rushed to the Bokaro General Hospital,” she said.
