Error during socket connection

I have a socket server and socket client. The client is able to
communicate with the server without any issues. But when we try to kill
the server using kill command, it shows the following error

I dont have any idea on why such an error comes... and how to handle it...
Expecting some guidance on this...

"Using the kill command", like, something built into your server protocol? Or "using the kill command" like, running the UNIX "kill" program? If it's the latter, then that's pretty much what you should expect -- "kill" isn't the right way to shut down a process cleanly. If you want a nice quiet way to turn your server off, provide another ServerSocket listening on a special port, and when that port receives a connection (or a connection followed by some special input sequence) then have the server exit.
