HP Notebook : Unable to Shutdown

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi bought a Notebook 15S-DU0094TU recently (2 weeks back).

Initially the trackpad started giving issues (unable to click), when I thought of rebooting. But after hard rebooting via Power Button, the Notebook is unable to completely shutdown. It is stuck with fan noise coming and power and charger LED glowing. 

Any idea how to bring it out of this state. The screen is blanked and already tried long hold of power button (along with mute as well)?

Let me know, or else will wait for battery to drain and restart.
