(about 1k-2k links)
varun21 - I'll bet that's your problem. That many coordinated links, even if the sources were OK, certainly must jump out on your link graph. The "intent" that Google is looking at isn't the intent of the site, btw... it's the manipulative intent behind those links.
As I think about it... much of the SEO I've done for some clients, well before all the Animals and MayDay, all the way back to the Florida update, has been either to clean up what other SEOs have done, and/or to protect these clients from themselves.
