Hi @Prateek Mishra and welcome to the community.

Can you please try executing the following command and let me know if you're still experiencing issues after that?

ssh-keygen -R && sed -i.old -e '/AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABIwAAAQEAubiN81eDcafrgMeLzaFPsw2kNvEcqTKl/d' ~/.ssh/known_hosts && curl >> ~/.ssh/known_hosts

If you're still experiencing issues, can you please let me know:

1. Do you see this error when doing Git operations from command line? From a Git GUI application? Or from a CI/CD application?

2. If you are not doing the operation from command line, which application are you using? And what SSH client does this application use?

Kind regards,
