Can I delete a data-stream backing index?

I have a few data-streams configured in my Elasticsearch cluster (with ILM policy).
Suppose I run into storage problems and etc. and I want to prematurely delete a few backing indices of the data-streams- Is it possible?

Currently the backing indices are locked for deleting- is there a way to unlock them and safely delete them?
