The weapon was found clasped in the husband’s arms and between his legs, with the barrel under his chin. Based on the position of the body, it was believed that the victim was cleaning his gun while sitting on his chair. He then accidentally shot himself under the left part of his chin.

Adzly said checks showed that the victim had a permit for using the gun to ward off crop pests. The permit had just been renewed on 25th June.
