    Hi Satyakam.

    You can use typeahead library of jquery in you VF page that can help you achieve the same functionality. Whenever user would select any value from data list, you can get that using typeahead:selected and remove that value from your datalist by writing custom remove function. As needed, you can use the selected value to display it on another div with checkbox and when user checks the checkbox, you can again add the value into the original datalist by using javascript push() function.

    $('#the-basics .typeahead').typeahead({
    hint: true,
    highlight: true,
    minLength: 1
    name: 'states',
    source: substringMatcher(states)
    }).bind("typeahead:selected", function(obj, datum) {
    alert('datum '+datum);
    //document.getElementById("inputTextTypeahead").value = '';

    alert('states2 '+states2);
    document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = states2;


    Note: datum is the selected value that user selects from the datalist. States is the data list.

    Following is the remove function that will remove the selected value from the original data list.

    Array.prototype.remove = function() {
    var what, a = arguments, L = a.length, ax;
    while (L && this.length) {
    what = a[--L];
    while ((ax = this.indexOf(what)) !== -1) {
    this.splice(ax, 1);
    return this;
