I was just cleaning it and it went off.

A PASSERBY was accidentally shot as a bungling security guard cleaned his gun outside an Indian bank.

The Times of India said Bappa Das, 22, was blasted in the stomach when the gun went off in the North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, northeast India.

Mr Das, who was wandering past the bank where Rabin Biswas worked, slumped to the ground and lay in a pool of blood several minutes before locals came to his aid.

He was rushed to the hospital in a serious condition while Mr Biswas, 30, was arrested by police.

"We have arrested the security guard. He claimed that he shot the boy accidentally while he was cleaning his gun," said a police official.

Mr Biswas tried to flee after the incident but a mob chased him down, the Times said.

They started beating him up but he was rescued by policemen who took him into custody.

"I heard a loud bang and thought a cracker had burst," shopkeeper Bhanu Mitra said.

"When I rushed out of my shop, I saw a boy writhing in pain on the road. Blood was oozing out of his stomach."

The security guard was due to appear in court today, police said.

"The government would have no answer if my brother died there," Biswajit Das, the victim's elder brother said.

"That security agency should take the responsibility for his treatment."
