She is charged with masterminding the infamous Blue Whale Challenge. The girl, whose name is not disclosed yet, has been accused of heading many Blue Whale Challenge groups.
According to the reports, she is also accused of threatening to kill her victims or their family members if they failed or refused to complete the challenges.
The girl, also known as the ‘death group administrator’, was herself a player of the Blue Whale Challenge. However, she did not finish the final challenge and chose to become an admin instead, said reports.
“This administrator was sending particular tasks, often life-threatening, to each of several dozen members of the group,” a media report said while quoting Colonel Irina Volk, Russian Interior Ministry. “In contrast to similar groups, teenagers in this group were blackmailed with death threats against them or their relatives for not completing the tasks,” the official added.
The Blue Whale Challenge’s creator, 22-year-old Philipp Budeikin was arrested in Russia earlier this year and sentenced to three years in prison. The girl even possessed a drawing of Budeikin, creator of the death game.
