The accused was very miffed over the actions of the soldier's daughter. In his rage, he poured petrol on the soldier's Swift car and set it on fire. Since the police registered an FIR against Khemriya, he is absconding.

According to the report, the soldier's daughter had previously filed a molestation case against Khemriya. During a court hearing, he fled the premises.
