I have read in a book "Mainframe Refresher" that

"Value -2 in null indicator indicates that the column has been set to null as a result of data conversion issue".

Can any one please tell with example that when Null indicators value is set to -2 with example ?

Note that you will have also gotten SQLCODE +802 on the query. You should use DSNTIAR to get the message with all tokens.
