The family members have alleged that Kachchap was tensed and depressed over the last few days due to an on-going inquiry, even though he was not concerned with it.

In the early hours of Saturday, Kachchap was supposed to join his colleagues for long-range-patrol (LRP) against naxals in Topchanchi. However, when he did not respond to calls on his phone, police officials reached his residence.
