if you have configured 2 way synchronization and if not useed/accessed properly - will surely cause such issue.

Please check your  iPad2/iPhone configuration properly and better to have backup!

Then there is no possibility to delete/remove your contacts automatically.

Either it is done manually or when it gets sync with Mobile devices.
