Post Slug always adds a suffix

The problem I am facing is with permalinks for Pages. WordPress just won't accept the origianl slug (such as 0705), it keeps on adding -2 or -3 to it. I checked the database for the Page ID in wp_posts table. There were no other Post or page with the slug 0705.
For existing pages, on the admin console while the quick edit option on page shows the slug correctly, on full edit page the slug is again shown as 0705-3 and if I change it it doesn't change. Moreover, the permalink (say http://www.nirantar.org/0705) doesn't work not even http://www.nirantar.org/0705-3 or http://www.nirantar.org/0705-2.
I even tried deleting this page and recreating it.
With new pages if whenever I add a slug, some suffix gets added to and I am not able to get the desired slug.
