How does sh interpret an image?
If you want to disable the crontab then prefix it with a hash (a '#')
This will make it be read as a comment and be ignored

I am not sure whether I correctly understand your problem.

Apparently you have a crontab entry and you want to remove it - so just remove it.
If it reappears, then this can only be caused by somebody else adding it again.
You have to find out on your system, who adds it.
There is nothing what we can solve.

Can you help with this problem?
