NEW DELHI:  The ruling AAP today asked its MLA Somnath Bharti to surrender before police even as the former Delhi Law Minister approached high court seeking protection from arrest in a case related to domestic violence and attempt to murder filed by his wife.     

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, said 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.
