Sounds like there's something very wrong with the hard drive. It is potentially dead. If your data is critical, I'd recommend taking it to a data recovery specialist. They should be able to get your data off the failed/failing disk for you.

after 10 days i just plugged in my WD removable drive it successfully detected both the partitions displayed its usage stats for a while, but as i tried to open one of the partition it hanged the whole system... can any say what has gone wrong with my WD .

I already did, there is something very wrong with your hard drive and you need to take it to a data recovery specialist if you want the data back. This isn't something you can fix on your own.
