Suicides are characterized as the victim's personal choice and denies the chance of detailed investigation in many forensic caseworks. Looking closely into each and every suicide attempted by the people between the ages of 12–22 years, external manipulation was considered as the usual and consistent factor. Manipulative suicides are the result of external pressure and persuasion that should be taken care of as a serious issue. The steps should be taken to reduce the number of suicides. The present study revolves around a survey of manipulative suicides occurred through a game of “Blue Whale Challenge” and concludes at a point that more than self-harming and depression, parental neglect, insomnia, misuse of technology and its effect on manipulating the psychology of both adolescents and young adults open up an elementary way influencing them to commit suicide. The need for preventing such attempts could be done by removing the stigma of self-harmers being suicidal and trying to make parents understand about the importance of their time in kid's life. Dependency on technology should be healthyand correct guidance should be given to help them cope with the extreme circumstances.
