Dear Dr. Muthukumaran, 
You can add charge for all types of metals. I have attached a parameter file in this email. You should place this parameter file in working directory of autodock i.e., the directory in which you have saved *.gpf and *.dpf files
Then, in the saved *.gpf and *.dpf files, add the following one line command at first line of the file:
parameter_file AD4_parameters.dat
Dr. Jayakanthan ( I hope you could remember me)
