I want to develop a code which can be used to select endpoints of the curves. enter image description here

There are three kinds of curve structures, although you only mention Bezier curves in the tag there are also NURBS/poly curves. This technique works for both, although you have to code NURBS/poly slightly differently.

You have to select the object containing the curve. The data field of this object will be of type bpy.types.Curve. The curve will have zero or more Splines. Each spline will contain either bezier_points or points.

Each spline may be cyclic, meaning it has no endpoint. If a spline has only one point, it is degenerate. Otherwise, the endpoints are always the first and last points in the spline.

That said, ignoring NURBS curves, this code will give you all of the endpoints of the active object, if it is a curve.

import bpy

def is_cyclic(spline):
    return spline.use_cyclic_u or spline.use_cyclic_v

def find_endpoints(spline):
    if spline.type == 'BEZIER':
        return (spline.bezier_points[0], spline.bezier_points[-1])
    elif spline.type == 'NURBS':
        return (spline.points[0], spline.points[1])
        return None

def all_endpoints(object):
    """ Returns a list consisting of
        None, indicating that the spline is cyclic
        tuple (EP 0, EP 1), containing the endpoints of the spline
        If EP 0 and EP 1 are the same then the spline has only one point
    if object.type != 'CURVE':
        return None
    all_endpoints = []
    for spline in object.data.splines:
        if is_cyclic(spline):
    return all_endpoints

endpoint_list = all_endpoints(bpy.context.active_object)
