Unable to delete branches from Git Repository


I tried to delete a branch that I created in GIT repository but got an error as,

Branch 'XYZ' could not be deleted
Control Freak: Push rejected. Control Freak ----- Push rejected. You are not allowed to delete branch "XYZ".

I was able to delete branches initially but everyone in my team face this error now.

You need a Bitbucket administrator to configure the Control Freak plugin (repository --> settings --> control freak) to allow this delete.  

By default Control Freak does not allow "master" or "release/*" style branches to be deleted. Notice the "Block Branch Deletes On" setting here in this screenshot from the Control Freak configuration page in Bitbucket:
