you have to use CHARINDEX 2 times..
DECLARE @search_string VARCHAR(100)
DECLARE @needle VARCHAR(100)
SET @needle = 's'
SET @search_String = 'string in s1' 
SELECT @search_string, @needle, CHARINDEX(@needle, @search_string, 1+ charindex(@needle, @search_string) )

you can use the charindex function
below is the example of how to find second location of str in stringstr
select charindex('str','stringstr',charindex('str','stringstr')+1)

try it like this
declare @str      varchar(60),
      @str1      varchar(10)

select      @str      =      'nehashobhasnehashobhatripthi',
      @str1      =      'shobha'

select charindex(@str1,@str,charindex(@str1,@str)+1)
