That is cladophora algae, sold as moss by idiots at galiff street and their LFS customers!

@ Mithun. thank you for the update. have removed the matter from the aquarium. however had not disposed them completely. as a learning experience, had tied them to some spare rocks and placed them in a mug of water. been three days now and checked them. no foul smell and they seem to be hugging the rocks. will post pics of the same after a few more days to learn the opinion of the people here.
