I was recently working on Broken link Hijacking and found a link in a target which reflected on multiple pages. It was portal.REDACTED.local which was not accessible and returned response as bad host.

So I never saw a extension that has .local so I just want to know if there is any way to claim this extension. If yes can you please share how can I claim this extension.

Thank you.

You cannot claim a .local domain. This is not a public top level domain but actually reserved for internal use. For more details see the Wikipedia entry about this top level domain.
