But, when trying to capture the packet i am getting this error.

*ERROR:packet.c:1982:call_dissector_only: assertion failed: (handle != NULL)

*Aborted*

Any idea what might have gone wrong ???
call_dissector_only is called from call_dissector what itself is called 
from dozens functions. Probably you may have a problem with registering 
your dissector correctly, but that's only a vague guess without any 
source code.
What about running Wireshark in a debugger, catching the assertion and 
examining the return stack? This could give a hint *which* handle is NULL.
