Sources said the party was upset with Bharti as it is unable to contact him. "We are trying to contact him, but are not able to. We advise him to surrender before police," said AAP leader Ashutosh.

Party sources, meanwhile, cited that Bharti's "remaining incommunicado" was sending a wrong signal as AAP has been maintaining the stand that Delhi Police have been victimising its MLAs by arresting them.

Three AAP MLAs -- former law Minister Jitendra Singh Tomar, Manoj Kumar and Surinder Singh -- have faced arrest by Delhi Police. If taken into custody, Bharti will be the fourth AAP MLA to be arrested in the last four months.

The Malviya Nagar legislator today approached Delhi High Court after a local court yesterday rejected his anticipatory bail plea and issued a non-bailable warrant against him.
