Run this search first
index=xyz source=abc |timechart count by splunk_server limit=0

Later, run the below search on each indexer server that are listed in splunk_server
index=xyz source=abc |delete

The delete command should give output of how many events it's deleting from each indexer, are you getting that? Do you use indexer cluster? It may take a while for data to be deleted completely from all nodes of indexer cluster.
