I had a site which was duplicate site of my original site and that was owned by my client. when i come to know about that i removed his account and when i checked in google , the site urls were crawled by google and his domain expired , so i cant use quick removal tool to remove the urls

the site was removed almost two months back but google not removing even one url of that site

is there any thing i can do to remove the links of expired domain from google search.

If the domain is no longer active, the urls should drop out - are you sure the domain no longer responds?

If things are exactly as you say, then you could do the search that brings up the results and file a report with Google by using the link at the bottom of the results page that says "Dissatisfied? Help us improve"

Yes, my experience is that Google will retain pages for a few months once the pages are deleted. I have recently done that with one domain (the hosting was canceled and a click on a search results lead to an error message) and what I am noticing is that pages are disappearing slowly.

If you wait long enough all pages will disappear.

Let the domain die, Google may not have updated the results in this case but it's showing as a 404 header right? Godaddy pending deletion pages are different, but either way G knows something isn't right. Let it sit.
