As a delete statement can only delete from one table at a time in SQL, you have to use a stored procedure to delete from multiple tables "at once".

However, it looks as if Pname in tables tbl1, tbl2, tbl3 and tbl5 are foreign keys to Pname on tbl4. If that is the case then you want to do a "cascade delete" - here is one article on the subject in CodeProject CASCADE in SQL Server with Example[^]
...and another from a different source Using DELETE CASCADE Option for Foreign Keys[^]
Create a Database store procedure and call the below query and when you are deleting from the gridview pass the id to store procdeure
Create Procedure p_Delete_records
(id int)
DELETE from Tbl1 where PName=@ID;
DELETE from Tbl2 where PName=@ID;
DELETE from Tbl3 where PName=@ID;
DELETE from Tbl5 where PName=@ID;
DELETE from Tbl4 where ID=@ID;
