Are you sure its a leak, or is it the lubrication from the chain getting spilled over? Wash the area clean and observe after a days riding.

I've done that jaggu sir. But the oil keeps on leaking albeit in small droplets around the nut(indicated by arrows) area.. Small puddles form beneath the bike when kept overnight...

That bolt you see in the picture just holds the cover in place. If it's not dripping oil i don't think you have to worry. I just checked my Karizma and i can also find oil wetness in the region, i assume that it's the excess oil from the chain.
