static char ch;//implicitly \u0000 default value is assigned for ch
int ia = new int;
at line 3,i am thinking like ia[\u0000] is executed.\u0000 is emptyspace.
then how come ia is printed.

Here's your mistake:
"\u0000 is emptyspace"
ch is 16 zero bits, and that is 0. The 16 bits are widened to 32 bits but that still results in the array index being 0.
