Okay thank you so much for this clue,
It seems we are using 65536 as the squashfs block size:
==> mksquashfs [...] - comp xz -Xdict-size 32K -noI -Xbcj arm -b 65536
But for dm-verity we are giving block size of 4096
==> [ 0.000000] Kernel command line:[..] verity="96160 12020
d7b8a7d0c01b9aec888930841313a81603a50a2a7be44631c4c813197a50d681 0 "
rootfstype=squashfs root=/dev/mtdblock34 ubi.mtd=30,0,30 [...]
root=/dev/dm-0 dm="system none ro,0 96160 verity 1 /dev/mtdblock34
/dev/mtdblock39 4096 4096 12020 8 sha256
Now, we are checking by giving squashfs block size also as 4096
In case, if this does not work, what else could be the other option ?
Can we try with initramfs approach ?
