Thank you. I tried these options but it is not working out.
The first option I cannot use  as I do not want to delete completely
from the repository.
I tried the second option, but it is merging the changes what I need is
to completely overwrite the latest with old version & check in.

This option is available in SOS something similar to it.

You have two possibilities to do that after you have got your sand box
up to date:
1/ you can delete all the file version you checked in before with the
   cvs admin using option -o,  for instance cvs admin -o 1.4 remove the
1.4 revision from repository.
   But this solution its not very good at least you know exactly what
you are doing (I suppose you ll get error
   if some tags are involve by the revision you want to delete).

2/ you can use merge to remove modification its more safe(on my point of
   If you want to recover the revision 1.2, after some modifications and
checked in, from the revision 1.5
   you can use this command: cvs update -j 1.5 -j 1.2 toto.c
   take care in the revision orders you use on the command
   so in this case the file toto.c in your sand box will be in Localy
Modified state, you check in
   and your file will get revision 1.6 matching revision 1.2.
