I have two option
1)write own decompress function using zlib
2) to use tvb_uncompress() function of wireshark

Both have issue if compress packet is over multiple frame.

wireshark tvb_uncompress() function work only from frame which have zlib
header which is obvious case.

Nope, AFAIK gzip header is also supported :)

is there any particular method to save all these bytes in buffers till i
got complete data so i can start decompressor.

Reassembly api (fragment_add, fragment_add_seq) or composite tvb use with conversations or
if your protocol is running atop TCP you can use DESEGMENT_ONE_MORE_SEGMENT :)

just a keywords, but hope that helps.
