TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police have arrested an organized crime boss for the sale of illegal pornographic DVDs from a shop in Toshima Ward, reports TV Asahi (Mar. 11).

On Wednesday, police took Yukio Katsuragi, a 64-year-old boss in the Sumiyoshi-kai, into custody for participation in the sale of DVDs in which genitalia was not censored.
