pandas.parser.CParserError Error tokenizing data

With a simple code like this

path = 'data.csv'
data = pd.read_csv(path)


I am getting error as:

pandas.parser.CParserError: Error tokenizing data. 
C error: Expected 2 fields in line 3, saw 12

where as my csv file contains only 3 columns, not sure what the 12 refers to.
