Not unheard of.
I would simply recreate the database. Stop the transport service, delete the files in the directory and restart transport. Exchange will create a new one.

Thanks for the response Simon.

As a work around I have done the same :)

However, is it possible that the mails in retry queue (Shadow redundancy) will contribute to it?
FYI... there were around 4 emails in queue from last one week for Journaling.

Anything that is in the queue will cause the database to increase in size. Shadow redundancy traffic shouldn't hang around though, if that is happening then you should investigate further.
