The man, identified as Rohit Yadav, 20, was alone at home when the accident occurred on Thursday afternoon. He was later discovered in a pool of blood by his mother after she tried to call him unsuccessfully a couple of times.
Forensic experts told the press that Rohit had tried to take a selfie with the gun, which his father had purchased for his work as a security guard, and accidentally shot himself. Samples were taken from the spot.
The father of the boy had recently been involved in some social media scandal.
