Accidently deleted /lib directory. I am not able to any kind of operation then I restarted the server getting kernal panic init not found.

Reinstall, poor soul.

If you have another system with a similar setup, you can boot your system from a livecd, and copy the contents from the good system to repopulate your /lib directory.
