Dear Experts,

 I am using linux apache CentOS6, I tried a lot of suggestion from internet and still not able to delete this file/directory with this file/directory  name

 \267s\270\352\256Ƨ\250\ (2)/

And

\267s\274W\244\345\246r\244\345\245\363\ (3).txt

tried this
del  "\\267*.txt"
rm -rf "\\267*"

but both failed

Please advise

Each has it's advantages.
You might also try something like
