mongoDB error : aborting after fassert() failure

What to do when facing errors on mongoDB “aborting after fassert() failure”

I like errors, in mongoDB this is the first error I faced and luckily many times. This error i faced during restoring name-space on local and restarting db system. I am still searching the exact root cause of this issue but i am able to resolve the current problem through below steps.
