Solution # 1 : It seems one of the probable cause for the battery drainage and the resulted overheating is a bug in Exchange mail checking routine of iOS 6.1, users can simply disable the 3G/WiFi connectivity and use manual email syncing for the time being to get rid of the issue.

Solution # 2 : Some users are also reporting, that deleting the iCloud login and resetting network settings fixes the issue.

The above workarounds have mitigated the issues for many iOS 6.1 users as reported on the Apple community support forums and should work as intended.
