    It doesn't seem to happen for any particular reason like a new text or something. To clarify, it's not the blue light that flashes when there is a text.

    Instead, it's torch light and no, it's not left on.

    Try booting into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables all 3rd party apps. How to boot the Galaxy S3 into Safe mode?

    If the problem disappears in Safe Mode, then something you installed is causing the problem. You may have to uninstall apps one by one until the problem disappears. If the problem persists in Safe Mode, then it's more likely to be a hardware or firmware problem.
