    Hi Hossam,

    Use the  REST API to bulk delete the contacts. First you need to identify them, that can be done by writing a custom script and in that custom script write some code that outputs the ID of the duplicate contacts such as they must be missing some attributes or field values. Then use that ID to delete using REST API.

    Thanks,
