It's highly probable the device is fried. If you didn't remove the battery in time or put the battery back before it was good and dry, then it's FUBAR. See http://blackberryfaq.com/index.php/G...ckBerry_Wet%3F. But once you are sure it is dry take a look at Is your BlackBerry Nuked? - BlackBerryFAQ. It isn't going to hurt to give it a try.

I removed battery immediately and let it dried in a warm car for 4 hrs. I inserted the battery and the problem started. Anytime i plug a charger it does the same thing. Pls any method that can help?

It is likely dead. You can try removing the battery and putting the BlackBerry in a sealed bag of rice for several days.

Take NJBlackberry's advice. Rice does wonders.

Good advice, and of course if it doesnt work afterwards, you have always got a meal to eat!
