While Restartting/Reloading of splunk it showed some error in splunk/lib/python2.7. So I deleted the entire directory python2.7 now it is showing below errors

Could not find platform independent libraries
Could not find platform independent libraries
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to [:]
ImportError: No module named site

What could be the root cause?

If you are not on the latest version, you might consider upgrading. splunk/lib/python2.7 should be re-created.

splunk/lib/python2.7 has all the libraries splunk basically uses and splunk will not be able to work without them.Removing the lib folder is almost same as removing entire splunk installation. In other words, starting a vehicle after removing it's engine :-). You might need to reinstall splunk to make it working again since the binaries are strongly coupled.

What if I copy the same python2.7 from some other Splunk?

Will it crash existing Splunk ?
