Snapshot not getting deleted


We had initiated a snapshot through curator and deleted it when the snapshot was in progress. But the snapshot is not getting deleted.

If I check the status of the snapshot it shows as aborted.

GET /_snapshot///_status
"snapshots": [
"snapshot": "",
"repository": "<repository_name>",
"uuid": "KVJ5-eO1SfqGT2aivlC9Yg",
"state": "ABORTED",

If I check the snapshots that are currently running,if still shows the status as "IN_PROGRESS'

GET /_snapshot//_current

"include_global_state": true,
"state": "IN_PROGRESS",
"start_time": "2019-01-19T07:56:57.954Z",
"start_time_in_millis": 1547884617954,
"end_time": "1970-01-01T00:00:00.000Z",
"end_time_in_millis": 0,
"duration_in_millis": -1547884617954,
"failures": ,
"shards": {
"total": 0,
"failed": 0,

If I try to initiate new backup,it dispalys snapshot still in progress.

Please suggest how the snapshot can be deleted.
