Hi Yash,

Glad you got it solved. I'd like to share some information on
this issue for the future, however:

If a package has been deleted, it should still be contained in the
AUR git repository. In this case, one can clone the repository in
question, make a bump revision to the PKGBUILD and push it to the AUR.
Doing this will recreate the package: AUR's git hook for pushes will
take care of creating the relevant database records.
