As John Ladasky suggested, I need to describe the criteria that cut needs to satisfy as well. Could you please tell me on the code how to do those steps?

You define the criteria, and then you write the code.

In your original post, you wrote: "The atoms of the first part/half according to the main COM of the ligand are C2, C7, C8 and C9. As for the second part they are C3, C4, C5 and C6 atoms."

HOW did YOU make that decision?  That's what you need to specify in order to write code.
