Mateev is reported to have been addicted to the computer game that his mother had bought for him.

 

According to a state-owned Russian television channel NTV, the boy is from Tomsk region and the police in Russia are investigating the claims.

 

It is unclear what computer game he was playing, but a female source said Pavel spent hours at his computer and that his “nerves gave in after a game”.

 

The local office of the Russian Investigative Committee gave no further details on Pavel’s case except to confirm a criminal case had been opened into incitement to suicide.
