Thanks to all who replied. 

This problem is resolved now. Almost all the replies were correct. Infact
this problem got resolved without unmounting the file system. There were
some open files by running processes which have been moved or deleted. Some
one else from my team have taken care of this. 

Special thanks to Baker Daryl, John Benjamins, Russel Page, Bob Summings who
have appropriate replies. 

Thanks and regards
