Fatal : Unable To Create "git/index.lock" : File Exists

Sometimes while trying a git commit, we get a message displayed as below:

fatal: Unable to create 'your_project_path/.git/index.lock': File exists

* If no other git process is currently running, this probably means a git process crashed in this repository earlier. Make sure no other git process is running and remove the file manually to continue.

How to solve Fatal : Not a git repository error ?
#git   #github

I need your help.

Something like git clone ssh://gituser@gitserver/project.git/some/path
