Elasticsearch 2.4.x shard data not removed from disk



We are experiencing an unbalance on our cluster, and after some manual shard reallocation, we saw that there was no disk space freed at the time.

After a quick check on the logs, we saw that lucene failed to acquire a lock:
org.apache.lucene.store.LockObtainFailedException: Can't lock shard

I found another thread following the same problem, but without any response and how to proceed:

We are experiencing exactly the same issue: how to proceed to remove such files safely?

Thanks in advance,
