Standard network configuration is for the network socket to close 60 seconds after even an abnormal termination of the process.
You might want to use lsof to figure out what application is using port 7006 and shut it down.
Shutting down the application is the way to go if you want that port released.

Well a quick google indicates that port 7006 is often used by BMC products such as Patrol or Control-M - if you have these on your system, you might want to stop/restart all the processes relating to that...
Also, do you know what the system with IP address 184.108.40.206 is and what it does? That might give you some clue as to what the processes holding the ports open are...
Otherwise you might want to get a copy of lsof:
lsof -i :7006
Should show you which processes have that port open
(I won't be surprised if the processe that have the port open are owned by the very application team that wants you to close them!)

Thanks much for your help.
Your answers are excellent and is worked.
What I actioned is:

And the port got closed successfully.
