A young man was saved from jumping off the Windsor Manor bridge at around 5.30 PM today (October 1). Authorities have suspected that he was a victim of Blue Whale game challenge.

28-year-old Ajay, hailing from Motihari in Bihar tried to commit suicide by jumping off the bridge, but he was saved by the passersby and the police. Currently, he has been taken into custody by the High Grounds Police, who are questioning him.

Ajay had cut his hands and was trying to jump off the building allegedly as his last challenge.

Currently, he is pursuing MBA in Mysuru, where he is residing at Vijayanagar. He had come to Bengaluru today and in the evening was trying to jump off the bridge. 

But when he was rescued and was asked he said that he was being tortured through an app. Some men were trying to force him for sex. "They are forcing me to be a gay. I am being mentally abused," he said. But when asked about the marks on his hand he did not give a proper response.

When asked if he was playing the Blue Whale game, he answered in negative. "I don't play any game," he said. "But four to five people are trying to kill me," is what he has said.

He looked disturbed, and according to the latest news, he has been admitted to the hospital. The cut marks on his hand are similar to that of a whale, but it is yet to be confirmed if it is because of the Blue Whale challenge.
