Panchnama witness in 498a

In the 498a case, police have filed a chargesheet and am facing the trial. In the chargesheet 2 of the witnesses statements are taken as panchnama witness without any panchnama done at my residence. Recently discovered one of the panchnama witness is a stock witness and the RTI response showed he has appeared in 5 other cases over the last 5 years(all the cases not connected to him), The other panchnama witness has not signed on the panchnama.

3. How much signi
