There are some typographical mistakes in a witness' statement, which we noticed after getting a certified copy of it. Words "regarding this" are missing in a line in cross examination, which seems to make it without context. "Father" is written instead of "mother" once in examination-in-chief, whereas every other instance is correctly written as "mother".
How to have typographical mistakes in cross examination and examination-in-chief corrected in a criminal case?
Do we need to submit an application regarding it?
Under what section of CrPC or some other provision would the application be?

Exactly what is the opinion of your counsel! As in criminal case it will hardly be permitted, anyhow file a petition and take concurrence with the court, prosecution or defense as the case may be.
