When I bend strings many times it make the sound dirty, presumably I touched other strings while releasing the bend. how do u avoid those?

one thing you can do is do what zakk wylde does and bend with you middle and third finger, leaving your first finger laying lightly across the fret/strings to mute them out.

Muting the other strings can be done with both left and right hands.
The right mutes the strings above, the left the strings below.
Some guitarists also use their other fingers(index) of the left hand to mute strings during bends and vibrato.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

Use your index finger to mute the above string.
