I need the specific events for Copy,cut,delete using Mouse right click.
Like for key board we use VK_DELETE

That is going to be difficult because of the delete. copy, cut, paste you could monitor the clipboard for, but delete is usually implemented by each application.

As far as I know, there are no standard way of doing that and each application handle right clicks, contextual menus and the clipboard for itself.
