Thanks for the response. One question I have is - my host machine is running CentOS 7.5 and the guest image is based on RHEL 7.5. I did check following on the host machine and there is no package called qemu-kvm-rhev installed.

rpm -qa | grep qemu-kvm

Same results for RHEL 7.5 guest VM, it doesn't have qemu-kvm-rhev installed. Though the bug mentioned by you (id = 1613277) looks similar, it is reported on RHEL 7.6. 
Is it same for CentOS 7.5 as well? And will there be a fix for CentOS based systems?

This was a bug in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.12.0-11.el7.x86_64 and should be
fixed in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.12.0 >= -13.el7.x86_64 which will be
available in RHEL 7.6 very soon.

No I think that's something else.
