Today I just logged to magento.stackexchange.com and shocked to see that my Profile Pic is changed and Reputation point is decreased (-125), saying −xx User was removed

enter image description here

Can any one say OR explain, what's happened to my profile ?

All I can tell you is that your -125 points come from the fact that a user that upvoted your questions/answers got deleted. Read more about this here.
I have no idea what happened to your avatar.
I only see in the activity report 2 avatar changes from May 30.
Maybe you changed the avatar on stackoverflow.com and you also clicked to change it on every other site in the stackexchange network.

  • but this is much disruptive to me (results in -125). Can't they use that "special deletion", stated in the link you provided ? Commented Aug 31, 2016 at 9:07
  • That's how the delete works. Special deletion applies in special cases. I guess this was not a special case.

  • This is ridiculous. If user is removed, why it should affect my points ? Commented Aug 31, 2016 at 13:06

    I don't make up the rules. read this question and the answers. Maybe you will understand why this is needed and why it happens.
