Is there is any solution for it? Why is this happening?

I'm pretty sure above script does NOT run unless the [B] and $ be removed.

Please share your ssh command line so we can analyse and help.

Quite sure the [B] is supposed to make it bold, while the (first) $ indicates it was run as user.
EDIT: But you're right, better not just assume this.
