Several Jugantar members were arrested, hanged, or deported for life to the Cellular Jail in Andaman

Jugantar From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search
Jugantar or Yugantar (Bangla: যুগান্তর) (English meaning New Era or more literally an Epoch in Transition) was one of the two main secret revolutionary trends operating in Bengal for Indian independence. This association, like Anushilan Samiti started in the guise of suburban fitness club. Jugantar carried out many terrorist activities like attempt to murder, murder and looting against the ruling British government. Several Jugantar members were arrested, hanged, or deported for life to the Cellular Jail in Andaman. Thanks to the amnesty after World War I, most of them were released and could give a new turn to their political career, mainly: (a) by joining Gandhi's Non-cooperation movement; (b) Deshabandhu's Swarajya alternative; (c) the Communist Party of India; (d) M.N. Roy's Radical Democratic Party; (e) Subhas Chandra Bose's Forward Bloc.
