 He was posing with his father's .32 caliber pistol on Friday evening when he accidentally pulled the trigger, according Manoj Kumar, Deputy Superintendent of Police in Pathankot, Punjab.Despite undergoing Surgery, the boy died of his injury on Sunday afteroon. 

According to Manoj Kumar, the fatal mistake was due to the gun's safety catch being off.

"We think that part of the blame obviously goes to the father for not keeping his loaded gun under lock and key at home."
