IF you delete files and they don’t go from df. You need also to kill whichever processes had those files open in the first place and then only it will update in df. lsof +aL1 /tmp will show the process id of running process. kill all the processes listed using kill command.
Now check the disk space usage of /tmp by df -h command as root user, this time it will shows /tmp is cleared.
