I have included Google Play game services in my Android game. I see lot of users posting fake scores.

Can I ban them or can I delete these scores somehow?

Probably something you want to talk to Google about. Also, there are a number of questions on this site about preventing cheating. You might want to look into a few of those to learn about some ways you can make it harder for people to post fake scores. Further, I edited your question a bit. The title was asking something different than the body and I made it slightly more specific to Google Play because, as I said, there are a number of questions here already about self made leaderboards that will have different answers than the Google Play leaderboards. – Byte56 Dec 9 '13 at 23:54

You can use the Google REST API gamesManagement.players.hide to hide a player from your applications leaderboard.
