Can any one explain what exactly does SPRequest class do and for what function we must use it?

Thanks in advance.

Well... it is an internal class, so most of the time you should not brother directly with it. Basically it is a wrapper for the unmanaged SP.SPRequest class which is in turn used by almost any read/write operation performed by the SharePoint object model. You can refer to this great blog post for further detail (it is just to long to copy all the material here). From my experience there should be no need to use it directly.
