Every bit of code in the first post is wrong. The permission declaration is wrong. GetPathFromContentResult is wrong.
it is obvious that my code is wrong and hence not yielding the desired result. Can anyone help me with a sample code please.

Arbitrary access to secondary storage is more difficult when targeting SDK above 28. Some available methods are here.
