Recently I noticed that many red ants are coming out from my laptop vent and display hinge
I haven't spilled any drink and never eaten anything near my laptop
I don't know how it happened
But now please tell me how can I get rid of those ants

DON'T use a vacuum cleaner!
Vacuum cleaners are not recommended: they're quite ineffective at removing dust from laptops and they can also cause a build-up of static electricity which you don't want around a laptop.

I would probably take a plastic bag larger than the laptop. Spray the inside with ant spray and wait until the bag is dry inside. Place the laptop in the bag and seal it with a zip tie. Wait a few days until you see no ants moving. Remove the laptop from the bag and either you dismantle and clean it using canned air or take it somewhere to have it dismantled and cleaned.
