Question is... What are the possibilities for quick release pin to come off from the hole of stowage rod inside main landing gear along with broken chain during flying mission?? 

 Upper Pip Pin of doors of Main LDGs are secured with safety chains normally  but   pip pins should be checked by C /chief in every schedule inspection for serviceability ie  two balls,with passage of time ball spring loaded are  be come U/S one or both.  you cannot insert the pip pin during flight /landing/takeoff. It seem to be negligence of crew crew chief

Make sure that the ring for the chain is connected to the side of the pin and not to the button.  If the chain is connected to a ring on the button, it can release the pin if the chain is pulled on.
