Raj Thackeray-- is going to get what he wants.

Raj Thackeray has been arrested in wee hours at Ratnagiri. The chief of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) was taken into custody shortly around 2:30am on Tuesday.
A case has been registered in Kherwadi against Raj Thackeray and supporters of his Maharashtra Nirman Sena after brutal attacks on north Indian candidates at 13 railway board examination centres in Mumbai.
It has been reported that Raj Thackeray has been booked under several sections including sections 353, 153, 336 and section 427.
The arrest at Ratnagiri was preceded by a crackdown on MNS activists by the cops. Several hundreds of MNS workers of the party had been taken into custody before the police made its moved at Ratnagiri on the party leader.
This was obviously done to prevent any spurt in violence especially after Raj Thackeray had openly threatened that there would be large scale violence in the Maharashtra if he was arrested.
He is being brought to Mumbai where he will be produced in Bandra Court.
Meanwhile, reports of stray incidents of protest against the arrest of Raj are coming in.
