Hi NMohan

In the repository settings you can choose which branch should be the default one. Apparently you have the master branch selected but it doesn't exist. Something is inconsistent.

Would you be able to try to select a valid branch and attempt to delete the repo again?

If that doesn't work, I advise you to raise a support issue with us so we can investigate further.

Best regards,
