I am seeing attached icon in the top right menu bar. I tried deleting MenuExtras by going to
/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extrasbut it didn't help, please help to hide or remove it.

That item is the VMWare fusion menu bar icon.
The vendor has this article and steps to allow you to disable and configure it.
To modify the behavior of this feature:
It looks like the option is no longer configurable in vmware fusion 8, or maybe I didn't look in the right place. I had to kill it and rename it to prevent it from running. Haven't had obvious adverse effect yet. So, open a terminal
ps -fx | grep -i vmware kill xxx # the pid number, such as 51889 sudo mv "/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/VMware Fusion Start Menu.app/Contents/MacOS/VMware Fusion Start Menu" "/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/VMware Fusion Start Menu.app/Contents/MacOS/VMware Fusion Start Menu.bak"
For someone who doesn't like command line, just rename the file, logout and login.
I used the following link it was helpful for VMware Fusion 8.0
Go to preferences > Show in menu bar
Select the option as per your preferences
I had this icon appear after log in today. I do not have any virtual machines. Another user has VMWare Fusion installed.
Here's how I solved it without messing with the installation.
