How do I handle deletions that avoids tombstone warnings?

Hi , I have tombstone issue in Cassandra for delete records. I have table with date column as partition key. Every day new records come and I have to delete previous date partition key. I noticed it is giving tombstone warning. Is there any way to handle it.

@resolve123_170609, there is no enough details as to the version, stack, etc., and there is already a good post that you could refer to here to understand how the tombstones work and how to deal with it. Please also refer to other discussion here on the community about tombstones.
