I just done the following steps to clean the website.

1. Changed passwords (FTP/MySQL) and script admin login

2. After taking the backup, fresh copy of script uploaded to public_html folder

3. Created new database and imported the sql from backup.

4. Updated Databse details /public_html/protected/config/db.php

After that when i check the site it was redirected to installation page.
