stuborn screen sessions

Being new to screen I am having real trouble with some basics.

Actually when I login to a machine and type
sharan :: screen -list

I see the following
There are screens on:
        11001.pts-11.hcllnx2    (Attached)
        10615.pts-11.hcllnx2    (Attached)
2 Sockets in /u/basappas/.screen.

Now when I try to detach these by typing
sharan :: screen -d 11001.pts-11.hcllnx2
[11001.pts-11.hcllnx2 detached.]

Now when I try to attach these by typing
sharan :: screen -r 11001.pts-11.hcllnx2
There is a screen on:
11001.pts-11.hcllnx2 (Attached)
There is no screen to be resumed matching 11001.pts-11.hcllnx2.

The main issue is I want to get rid of these screen sessions. I am not able to somehow.

I tried the following command
sharan :: screen -wipe 11001.pts-11.hcllnx2
There is a screen on:
11001.pts-11.hcllnx2 (Attached)
1 Socket in /u/basappas/.screen.

Can someone decipher what is going on and help me kill these screen sessions ..
