In normal file managers like
nautilus, if i select an item and press delete button, it will delete that item.
How can i achieve the same in dired? When point is at file, pressing delete button should delete that item?

If you use library Dired+ then the
delete key is bound by default to to command
diredp-delete-this-file, which deletes the file named on the line of the cursor, after confirmation. (
C-k is bound to the same command.)
This is the entire definition of the command:
(defun diredp-delete-this-file () ; Bound to `C-k', `delete' "In Dired, delete the file on the cursor line, upon confirmation." (interactive) (dired-do-delete 1))
