We have a table with 150000 records. It has a primary key on 3 columns and a index on 5 columns.

When a select query is executed on this table usully it takes 6 seconds to execute but some time it takes more than a 60 seconds and then 'Query Time out' message is reported.

This problem is seen intermittently.

What could be the solution for this? or What approach I should follow to derive proper solution?

Without seeing the query, it's hard to offer any really useful information.
Have you checked for blocking?
