I accidently connected cubietruck to 12V supply. The image of the board is attached. And the part that blew up is marked.. Please give the part number so that i can replace it... And please tell whether i should check for damage in other places..

From my board I could see this is a capacitor, but as all is SMD it is extremely difficult to recognise any value. I also do think you'll probably have fried the whole board, the capacitor is mainly for stripping of some ripple from the voltage supply and it should run without it when e. g. connected to a battery. So you'll very likely be out of luck. Put the board in the bin and get a new one.
