I tried removing through gpedit.msc but couldn't find the relevant templates regarding the windows defender.

Can anyone please help me out with this?

You can try these steps

 

Under Settings > Update & security > Windows Update you might see the text “Some Settings are managed by your organization” even though your PC isn’t being managed by an organization.

I cannot find any Windows Defender Antivirus template as I said in my first message. Can you help me with that?

There is no such message.

This one. Actually my laptop was infected by a virus earlier on. I removed the virus. But the problem with windows Defender and gpedit.msc still persist.

Maybe you don't have the Windows Defender option because of edition you are using.

If real-time protection is turn off you can use my batch script to enable it. Run the batch script as a administrator and restart your computer after enabling Windows Defender.

 

Enable or Disable Windows Defender

If you have a computer that belongs to some organization, contact your organization's computer specialist, and he will solve the problem.

He has administrator rights and can change everything.

I am using my laptop at my home only. It doesn't belong to any organisation. It's some kind of fault with the laptop.

If it is Your own computer, You will get never such a notification
Windows Defender message-"Some settings are controlled by your organization."
It was registered during installation as organization computer, but not like Yours computer.  And that is why You see this message, why You cannot change some settings, why You even cannot see all local policy values etc.
Whether you're after the installation verified and confirmed, that you are the owner and thus to become full administrator rights?

Till You haven't owner, You'll see this notification there.

My computers show the same message.  On my computers, my understanding is that the messages are being generated by Bitdefender, which turns off Windows Defender as a part of its installation routine.  I have seen other anti-virus products also turn off Windows Defender/Security Essentials.

 

What anti-virus program are you running, if any, other than Windows Defender?

 

Have a great day.

There is no policy set for Windows Defender.

At the Command Prompt, type gpresult /r >%UserProfile%\Desktop\test.txt and press Enter key.

Attached the test.txt file to your next post. The test.txt file will be located on your Desktop.
