You can probably use the laser_scan_assembler node for this. It's in the laser_assembler package.

There are example launch files in section 4.3, and sections 4.4 and 4.5 provide examples in both Python and C++ that show how to interact with the node. Section 5 has a link to a tutorial.

Thank you for help I have created the launch file and execute it. While the bag file is running, but not able to create new PointCloud based file.
