Deleting a group will automatically remove all members along with all messages and the group will disappear. On Telegram Desktop, basically you just need to convert the group to Supergroup and then click Delete Group button.

In order to practice this, I did delete some of my groups on Telegram 1.2.1 on my KDE neon and it worked (however, current latest version is 1.6.3). Detailed step by step instructions are available below. Happy cleaning!
