original url :

[external links are visible to admins only]

dulpicate url (which is actually not present  in my website) :

[external links are visible to admins only]

[external links are visible to admins only]

[external links are visible to admins only]

[external links are visible to admins only]

atually 342 in the url is mentioning the city in original, for each city duplicate url has been generated  in sitemap.

Hello,

you need to make sure that non-existing URLs return 404 file not found error (currently they are opening) - in this case they will not be added in sitemap and you will see where they are linked from in broken links report.

Hello,

the best way to handle this is to display  404 error without additional redirects.
