Hi Bala,
Deleting is applied to specified atoms, not other stuff like BILD  
objects or density maps.  To get rid of those other types of models  
you would use the command "close", for example:

close 0
close #0

if the BILD model is #0.  Normally delete is used to get rid of part  
of an atomic structure, (for example, "delete solvent") whereas  
"close" gets rid of whole models of all types.


I hope this helps,
