Acting on a Jamshedpur court order, the Mumbai [Images] police on Monday arrested Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray [Images], who is accused of hurting religious sentiments and instigating violence.

He was later released on bail.

The MNS chief was arrested today morning by the Shivaji Park police and produced before the Dadar court, where he was granted bail of Rs 15,000, Raj's lawyer Shayaji Nangare told PTI.

The Dadar court directed Raj to appear before the Jamshedpur court by January 10.

On December 16, a court in Jamshedpur issued a non-bailable warrant against Raj, whose party had launched a violent agitation against North Indian migrants living in Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra.
