Postman’s knock

Ilya Sidorov, a Moscow postman, has been arrested for developing an online ‘game’ which set young people a series of challenges, the last of which, on the 50th day, is to commit suicide.

It’s believed that he may be part of the so-called ‘Blue Whale’ network, named after creatures that supposedly beach themselves (and die) deliberately.

It’s alleged that (among other things) his ‘game’ instructed a schoolgirl to jump under a train.
