Now what about the column other than the clustered index. They too might have fragmentation. Does this means Table Fragmentation.
No. Fragmentation is something that indexes have, not tables.
Fragmentation is the difference between logical and physical order. Columns that are not part of an index key have no logical ordering, hence can't be fragmented.
