Now I know that there are extensions like CloseAllInactiveTabs to close all inactive tabs.
But I need to keep several tabs (from the left) open and close all other tabs from the right.
I sometimes need this feature when I have several important tabs open on the left
and I want to close all the other unnecessary tabs from the right.

So , my question is : are there any extensions that let me set the number of tabs to keep open while closing all other inactive tabs from the right?

Have you tried the Tab Wrangler? You can set tabs to close after a certain amount of time and you can also specify the minimum number of tabs you want to stay open at all times.

The tabs that are auto-closed are saved by the extension, so you can always re-open them later.

Does it give the options to perform close manually with Tab Wrangler? – MD. Mohiuddin Ahmed Sep 19 '13 at 9:46
Not as far as I can see. It does however do most of what you stated in your question. – Yass Sep 19 '13 at 16:38

I found a very quick and easy solution. Right clicking on the rightmost required tab gives you this option: Close tabs to the right

Clicking on it does exactly what I needed :)
