That is the problem. One file sizes upto 50GB and other 3 GB...

 52872944 -rw-rw----   1 root  wheel      50G Jan 13 22:51
  3320928 -rw-rw----   1 root  wheel     3.2G Jan 13 22:51

I am just standing nowhere to remove the files....

have tried by setting flags, changing modes.... all as a root but no luck

Any help?
