Pega Platform 7.2.2: Curious NullPointerException on production

Hello,
I got a Null Pointer Exception on the production server today. Below is the stack trace found in the PegaRULES.log.
The operation team didn't get any issue reports from end users, so the steps to reproduce the issue are unknown.
What might be the possible cause for this curious NPE ?
