I have rewritten edit.php in /administrator/components/com_content/views/article/tmpl/edit.php to create an Events tab just like in this screenshot

enter image description here

The only main issues I'm facing is how to to Save these 3 (Start Event, End Event and Location Event). I've looked up in /administrator/components/com_content/models/article.php and yet to find a good example to follow on how to save into the database.

Need help how to save these 3 new input into #__content table database. And Yes, I have created 3 column for these 3 in table #__content

No no no, do not modify core edit.php or add columns in a core table. This file is going to be replaced in any upcoming update, and your new table columns are not a good practice.
