delete query doesnt work with php

I have a very peculiar problem. I have an app with an 'Edit' and 'Delete' button displayed for every record. Edit basically deletes the old record and inserts a new one whereas Delete just removes the record from database.

The problem is that while pressing Delete button the old record does not get deleted. The same record gets deleted when user clicks Edit button.

Now comes the most interesting part, both these functionalities use the same function for deleting the record.

function deleteRecord($userID,$activity,$refNo,$descr,$requestBy,$date)

$query = "delete from Timesheet where UserID='$userID' and tDate ='$date' and Activity='$activity' and RefNo='$refNo' and Description='$descr' and RequestBy='$requestBy'";
$result = getSQL("commit");
return $result;

getSQL() is a just a simple function i use to create the db connection and run the query, no logic there.

I also tried printing the delete query generated and ran the same manually and it works fine. Any clues?
