Hi Deepak,

This happens when your HEAD reference is missing. You can create a new head by doing the following:

echo ref: refs/heads/master >.git/HEAD

You can now continue using git commands as before to try restore your repo and branches.

Some more info can be found on this page.

Cheers,

Ivan.
