Take the affected plants out of your tank and give them a bath for 2-3 mins / few quick dips in hydrogen peroxide (It is used as an oxidizer, bleaching agent and disinfectant) solution (available in medical stores) prepared in a separate container, then wash them thoroughly in fresh water and re-introduce them in the tank. It will solve the problem

Thanks will try that out. :)
