Snapshot Busy

I have a scenario where i had taken a lun clone from a scheduled snapshot. I have already deleted the clone but the snapshot still appears busy and cannot be deleted, it continues to grow in size and i cannot delete with the -f option as that will clear all the snapshots in my volume including the snapmirror snapshot.

I am on v3140 with 7.3.3 as the OnTap version
