Varghese has been running a coffin shop close to Sebastian's house. Sebastian filed a complaint in the panchayat against this. However, the authorities did not take any action finding the complaint was baseless.
Sebastian was furious about this and was trying to take revenge. On the day of the incident, he climbed to the terrace of his house and hurled a petrol bomb on Varghese.

Following the blast, the locals blocked Sebastian and handed over him to the police.
