Thanks for your response.
I know that redoing is a solution but I was just exploring any other way out (like there is one for changing to bin mode for a file in the repository).

BTW this kind of an import creates problem only on HP-UX not Linux.

Bad move -- you need to import just the binary files in binary mode, the
text files should be imported in text mode.  You can use the -W option
on the import command to specify what files should be treated as binary,
but you should also consider why you're trying to store object code and
libraries in a source control system.  For more details, see:

Redo the import correctly.
