It appears you have executed rc(1m) and possibly have executed scripts that are called when the run level changes.

You could look at /etc/rc.log for recent messages of what happened.

You might be able to undo this by "init 3"

It looks like it did an alphanumeric compare and changed from runlevel 3 to level 1.

Try "init 3".

it is clearly showing
--------------------------------
root@BCM#who -r
. run-level 3 Aug 24 14:02 3 0 S
----------------------------------
root@BCM#uptime
3:50pm up 120 days, 1:49, 1 user, load average: 0.01, 0.01, 0.01
-----------------------------------
if i give #init 3
it will effect on my up time report
so is there any way to do something?

Your system is already "down", what do you care?

I assume you looked at /etc/rc.log and saw nothing there too?

What does this show?
/sbin/getrunlvl

If "init 3" doesn't do anything because it still thinks it is at 3, you could try:
rc ignore 3

And if the above doesn't work, you'll need to do:
init 1
init 3
