Program check, data exception?
Look at the dump and find the garbage field....
Uninitialized storage might influence initial logic branching.....
Older COBOL compilers would pre-format working storage, but later ones do not without explicit LE options being set.

Please let me know is there any option to cehck the Dump
The PSW usually points to the instruction after the one that ASRAed. Look at the ASRAing instruction and find it in the COBOL listing and see what it was doing.
Or look at the ASRAing instruction and from the dump, trace back to where the data component came from and further, what its current value is.
