If the net charge on the ligand is -0.4, your topology is wrong. PRODRG
shouldn't have given that output, so if you're messing with the charges, you've
made a mistake. You'll have to fix the charges properly from PRODRG; they're

Solve the above issue before doing anything else. The observation of adding a
ligand and changing the net charge of the system by -4 is inconsistent with the
above description of your ligand topology.
