Splunk stops reading new files in a directory when the old file is deleted

We are monitoring docker container logs in base linux OS using universal forwarder, whenever docker containers gets restarted the old files will get deleted and new files/folders will get created. When that happens Splunk UF (7.2.3) stops reading new files. I think it is still looking for old file, how to handle this situation ?
