@Ravi Gupta I believe since you can search an issue, you can get the sprint name, sprint id and boardid from the response. Then you can use that data gotten to extract more info on which boards those issue belong to by using the get issues for board endpoint, since you can identify a board id.

You need to think slightly differently to what you've said there.  Issues do not belong to a board.  They are selected by a board.  The difference is important because you need to understand that boards are not issues containers (projects contain issues), they are views of a selection of issues.

It is hard to ask "what board is an issue shown on" because the issue is not part of a board, and has no data to say "I am on boards x, y and z".

You can easily go the other way though, and ask "what issues are on a board", as the board knows what it is selecting for. 

I'm not sure which of these might be best for you:

You'll see they're all on the same page of the docs and there are more calls that might help explained on the left.
