set @date = CONVERT(varchar(25), @dt, 101)

where @dt is your input datetime parameter i.e. Thu Sep 23 19:34:06 IST 2010

Assuming that value is not a datetime data type (otherwise the question would never have been posed) than I suspect you need something like this:
SELECT CONVERT(varchar(10), CAST(SUBSTRING(@YourDate, 5, 6) + ',' + RIGHT(@YourDate, 4) AS date), 101)
