You can delete those files using their inode numbers...
for eg..
cd <to dir..with these log files>
# ls -il | grep -i log |awk '!/total/{print $1}' | while read ln
find . -inum $ln -exec rm -rf {} \;

Dear Corona,
I tried the way you have mentioned but had same error
 # ls -tr | head -3 | while IFS="" read LINE; do rm "$LINE"; done
AnjuP   .log: No such file or directory
ranjap  .log: No such file or directory
varghp  .log: No such file or directory

deleting with reference of indoe just worked
#ls -tri| grep -i log|head -4|  awk '!/total/{print $1}'| while read ln; do find . -inum $ln -exec rm {} \;; done

Thank u all for providing your valuable time Smilie)
