I've found a method to do it and it really helped me to delete the files or folders in Python,

def remove(path):
    """ param <path> could either be relative or absolute. """
    if os.path.isfile(path):
        os.remove(path)  # remove the file
    elif os.path.isdir(path):
        shutil.rmtree(path)  # remove dir and all contains
    else:
        raise ValueError("file {} is not a file or dir.".format(path))
