Charles is right.  Quite often the fields from the discharge will disturb
your device even if the discharge itself is safely routed away.  Does
discharge to the horizontal or vertical coupling planes cause problems?

Hello Ramesh - Your best bet is to prevent the discharge from occurring in
the first place.  Unless the addition of insulation barriers will affect
your cooling, I suggest you either block the airgaps in the tool (i.e remove
the holes) or add  insulation over the board area that is affected.
