And not for i9100 international version of S2 <-- So trying this guide on a i9100 may brick your device ***

Dear Harsha, Your efforts are really welcomed, however there are very detailed thread on how to Root GS2 (rather any ICS device).

It may be posted elsewhere, but to a noob like me coming across this info seems real helpful, so thanks for your effort. My galaxy S2 is bricked and i'm trying to recover data - will this wipe my data do you know? Perhaps I could save my data via clockwork mod before I flash it with ODIN (if the flashing wipes data that is)? Thanks again
