Hi Yvan,
Thanks for the reply.
I came across a similar issue (https://trac.ipsec-tools.net/ticket/269),  guess this is the one that you have mentioned in your reply. I am going to try the fix given for this issue.
Thanks and Regards,

Sounds like a fd leak....

In next release :-)
If I remember correctly, this is a known issue which have been fixed
in HEAD branch (so which will be in 0.8 release), can someone confirm
that ?

Sounds like, yes.

If the fd leak is on file's fd, you can reduce it by generating a
single racoon.conf and stop using includes.... but it will probably
still happen (unless leak is specific to included files in the conf).
