I received my new job offer and my join date is in next 2 weeks. I signed the offer for a particular package which is $5000 more than my current package. But I just received a 5% salary increment and $5000 bonus in my current job(which now equals to what my new job is offering me).
So my question is, is it good to negotiate the package with my new Employer as my current pay is similar to what my new job is offering me?
Is it ethical? Is there a way for this approach?

Why did you want to leave? Only because of the money? If that is the case you could try to re-negotiate.
Being on the other end of the table I would likely not want to hire you anymore as it seems I can't trust you on an agreement we struck. In my country I can nullify a contract within the first month without reasons (an employee can leave that way as well, BTW), so I would probably say goodbye there and then...
If there are other reasons you wanted to leave: better long term prospects for instance. Start you new job and earn your better package in the future.
Bottomline: you have signed. Take it or leave it, I guess...
