Did you shutdown the machine properly? Seems like there corrupted fs on root directory.
If you have access to Live cd or recovery console - check those reported inodes. And also run fsck and see it helps or not.

Do you have live-cd or live-usb? If so, you can use that mount the drive and do 'ls -li'.
If the device is unmountable, you can try using 'debugfs' command from e2fsprogs.

Is the system crashed after installation ? Or it happened after some upgrade?

This system was in production and reported when crashed. No new installation and no upgrade made and was running fine from 2 years. CISCO application running on that server. I have physical access of this server. I have tried from grub but no luck.

We actually have a sticky on this very topic.

Superficially, this indeed appears to be some kind of mis-configuration of the volume groups. And/or you may need to boot a rescue-DVD and run fsck on volumes. Might you have a failing disk drive?
