Dear Nityanand,

Here are a few items I found in the GRETIL corpus:

ajuṣran (RV 1.71.1c)
pariṣritaḥ (3x), pariṣrayati (1x), miṣram (Śatapatha Brāhmaṇa)
zuṣrūṣamāṇānām (Bhāgavata Purāṇa 1.1.13)

It could also in principle be found across a word boundary, when a word 
is left to stand with final ṣ (e.g. jyotiṣ rajas, Nirukta).
